I Will Never Cook A Sweet Potato Another Way Again After Learning A Simple Trick To Making Them
Potatoes are one of the most versatile foods on the planet because they are so cheap to produce and they can feed so many people. In fact, potatoes are in so many of our foods today that often times we don’t even remember it!
There are many types of potatoes in all different colors, but one of the most popular type is the yam, or sweet potato.
Not only are yams delicious, but there is a way to cook them that will make them melt in your mouth, and all you need is a slow cooker!
Sweet potatoes not only taste good, but are good for you. They have 262% of your daily intake of vitamin A, and 29% of your vitamin C. They are packed with fiber, and will fill you up for cheap!
Usually, people throw these potatoes in the oven or even in the microwave, but there is a much better way to cook these in a slow cooker.
I love my slow cooker and use it to make cheap and easy dinners all of the time, but I have never thought to use it to make sweet potatoes, a dinner side staple in my home. Now that I’ve made sweet potatoes in the slow cooker, I don’t think I will ever cook them my old ways again. This is just too easy, tasty, and inexpensive! This would also be perfect for Thanksgiving. What Thanksgiving day cook doesn’t love a dish you can just prep and let sit for hours without having to fuss over? Plus, your guests will certainly be happy with the outcome.
To get started cooking sweet potatoes in your slow cooker, just rinse and wash the exterior of the potatoes, and poke some holes in the skin to relieve some of the pressure that will build up. Don’t dry the potatoes, as the liquid on them will be sufficient for cooking so you don’t need to add more.
Throw the potatoes into the slow cooker for about 6-7 hours on low for 4 potatoes at a time. You can also cook them on high for 3 hours, but they will not be as tender.
After they are done cooking, you will have golden, soft, and steamy sweet potatoes with little to no work required!
