helpful hints

  • Buy the dark skinned sweet potatoes with bright orange flesh, which are labeled garnet or jewel yams in grocery stores
  • Leave the skins on the sweet potatoes for extra nutrients and texture; just be sure to scrub them well
  • Be sure to cut the rounds to even thickness for even roasting
