Home cooking Sweet Potato in the oven (30 Aug 2014)

Simple & easy sweet potato

Cooking sweet potato in the oven is so easy even I can do it. Baking it will make it soft and sweet and can then be seasoned as you like.

Cooking instructions:
1. Preheat your oven to 200°C or around 400°F
2. Scrub and wash the sweet potato skin with water to remove any dirt
3. Pierce the skin with a fork in several spots all over
4. Place sweet potatoes on a tray or rack with foil or baking paper underneath to catch any drippings
5. Bake in the oven for about 60 minutes depending on size
6. Take out, cut in half and season with salt, pepper, butter or your favourite herbs and spices
7. The sweet potato should be soft enough to squash easily with a fork and scrap away from the skin if preferred
8. Enjoy!

Baked sweet potato is one of my favourite treats - perhaps stemming from when I was studying in Shanghai in winter, and you could buy whole roasted sweet potatoes from streetside hawkers who cooked them in big steel drums!
