Sweet Potato Tips
Contributed By: LR
- Long, slow cooking brings out the flavor in sweet potatoes. You can
microwave sweet potatoes, but they'll taste best if you bake them for an
hour or more at 350 degrees.
- For best results microwaving sweet potatoes, pierce and microwave on high
power, changing their position and turning them over a few times. One potato
takes four to six minutes to cook through.
- Bake several sweet potatoes at once, and keep leftovers for later. Cooked
sweet potatoes can be refrigerated or frozen.
- Lemon juice, vinegar and other acidic foods slow your body's absorption of
the sugars in sweet potatoes, which evens out the insulin response. Serve
sweet potatoes with a squeeze of lemon juice or with a side of greens
seasoned with vinegar.
