  • comes out clean. Cool for 15 minutes in the pan.

Notes

You can also purchase sweet potatoes and bake them 425º in the oven on a baking sheet lined with aluminum foil and prick the sweet potatoes all over with a fork until tender, 45 to 50 minutes with the peel on, then peel and mash once they’re done. You could cook them in the microwave instead if you want to. They’re much easier to peel once cooked.
