Cooking tips: How to make the best crispy sweet potatoes?
Rinse them in warm water and pat them dry with power towels. Use a sharpie and sturdy vegetable peeler to remove some or all of the skin. Sometimes I leave the skin on because it’s packed with vitamin A among other things. Do your best to make them all the same size when you slice the sweet potatoes into pieces. Properly grease your sheet pan or use parchment paper. Evenly season the pieces with salt and other spices. Make sure the oven is hot before you bake them and don’t over cook. Remove them from the oven when done don’t just turn the oven off.
