How To Bake Sweet Potatoes?

I know some of you are reading this and saying to yourselves, 'I know how to bake a sweet potato. ' I'm here to share with you tips and tricks on how to bake the best sweet potato.

Baked Sweet Potatoes

  1. Choose sweet potatoes that are firm with smooth skin.
  2. Preheat oven 400 degrees F.
  3. Wash your sweet potatoes to remove dirt. I wash every fruit and vegetable that comes into to my home.
