Here's a general guide on how to prepare sweet potatoes:
Wash and scrub: Start by washing the sweet potatoes thoroughly under cool running water to remove any dirt or debris. Use a vegetable brush to gently scrub the skin.
Peel (optional): Depending on your preference, you can either peel the sweet potatoes or leave the skin on. Peeling is not necessary, especially if you prefer to retain the nutrients and additional texture provided by the skin. However, if you choose to peel them, use a vegetable peeler or a knife to remove the skin.
Cut into desired shape: Slice the sweet potatoes into the desired shape for your recipe. You can cut them into rounds, cubes, wedges, or any other shape depending on the dish you are preparing.
- Boiling: Place the sweet potato pieces in a pot, cover them with water, and bring to a boil. Cook until tender, typically for 10-15 minutes. Drain the water before using the cooked sweet potatoes in your recipe.
- Roasting: Toss the sweet potato pieces with oil, salt, and any desired seasonings. Spread them out on a baking sheet and roast in a preheated oven at around 400°F (200°C) for approximately 25-30 minutes or until they are tender and caramelized.
- Steaming: Arrange the sweet potato pieces in a steamer basket and steam over boiling water until they are fork-tender, usually for about 15-20 minutes.
- Mashing: Boil or steam the sweet potatoes until tender, then drain any excess water. Mash them with a fork or potato masher until smooth. You can add butter, milk, and seasonings like cinnamon, nutmeg, or brown sugar for added flavor.
