When using sweet potatoes do you keep the skin or peel it off? If you do keep the skin what do you do to clean it to avoid ingesting the ebola virus?
I wash the skin and bake it. Then I take the skin off.
I just wash it then poke it several times and wrap it in a damp paper towel and nuke it for 7 minutes or so.
I hope you remove the paper towel when nuking.
No wiy i dampen the paper towel completly and wrap the sweet potato in it and then nuke the paper towel keeps it from drying out
You for real? That’s safe?
yes it is safe as long as you dampen the entire towel it works great the sweet potato comes out somewhat soft and not at all dried out ive done this a million times, then open spread with margarine and pepper, or margarine and cinnamon try it!
I just wash the skin and cut it up and boil it — it cooks pretty fast, within a few minutes. I remove the skin if I’m feeding it to a baby or small toddler, though, since babies don’t do well with skins.
“since babies don’t do well with skins”
Especially male ones when they are 8 days old.
I peel it first, hasn’t been an issue.
I generally don’t peel the sweet potatoes, but I scrub them well.
And a sweet potato with butter and cinnamon is delicious (or margarine, if you’re eating meat).
