Well I threw one in the oven about 5 mins ago at 350. Is this the right temp and how long should it take? I just gave it a quick scrub and threw it in there. Oh and I will be trying some PB on it maybe some sugar free syrup too!

hmmm depends on the size, in the oven they take a while. did you poke holes iin it? if you didnt take it out and do that.
i always nuke minie for 5 mins, much more convenient.

Should I nuke it then throw it in the oven? Also I heard you shouldn't poke the holes till the end?

no, dont bake and nuke, do one or the other. baking takes longer.
poke holes in it first so the heat can escape and circulate.

A 1/2 lb. sweet potato usually takes about an hour at 350.

Baked it for an hour at 350 came out like **** I think, there were white lines running through the meat of it normal? Also still partially hard. I think I may have gotten a bad potato. I am gunna try and make another one tomorrow.

Oven.. 350 for 30-40 minutes poked with holes in it

Hi, I've been taking sweet potatoes to work for awhile now.

I scrub them with a dish brush and water, wrap them tight in foil while they are still wet and bake them right on the center rack in the oven for 1 hour at 400 degrees. They come out perfect every time. Then when I'm ready to eat one I tear off one end of the foil, break the skin off one end and scoop out the good stuff with a spoon. Yum!

Do you eat it with skin or without?

I didn't eat the skin do people actually eat the skin? I am going to try the microwave method tomorrow because even though I ****ed this one up it was still pretty good so I can't imagine when I get it right. Oh and it was super good with PB.

I was going to say to make sure you wrap it with foil. It cooks it better. Have you tried making sweet potato fries yet in the oven? Thats good stuff. ;)

I had success at 375 for 50 minutes.. Store by me has Korean Yams too, taste better than the orange kind. Thing I had read said to not use foil.. oh and I eat the skin too.
