Sweet Potatoes, Cooking

Baking Sweet Potatoes
Pierce before baking to let the steam escape. Place on a foil lined baking sheet to catch any juices.

Boiling Sweet Potatoes
Do not peel first, as the thin skins will slip off after boiling. This will leave most nutrients intact.

Microwaving Sweet Potatoes
Pierce several times with a fork and place on a paper towel. After cooking, wrap the potatoes in foil for 5-10 minutes before serving.

Remember, always scrub sweet potatoes under cold, running water before cooking.
