Slow Roasted Sweet Potatoes

Postby KathyK » Thu Mar 07, 2019 12:29 am

From The Smitten Kitchen. This is just stupendous. By the time my sweet potato was done roasting, my kitchen smelled like sweet potato pie. The sweet potato was moist and light and fluffy and unlike anything I had eaten before. I didn't bother with the broiler, but I did let the potato rest for 10 minutes. Okay, five. Three. I couldn't wait to taste it.

Heat oven to 275°F.
For each potato:
1 teaspoon olive oil
1/2 teaspoon salt (this will make a quite salty skin, so use less if desired)
1/4 teaspoon pepper

Arrange sweet potatoes on a large, foil-lined baking sheet. Rub each with olive oil, salt, and pepper until well coated. Bake until very soft inside and caramelized on the bottom, about 2 1/2 hours.
Heat the broiler and run the potatoes underneath it until lightly charred on top. Depending on the broiler, this can take 5 to 10 minutes. Check in regularly -- a robust broiler might do it in 1 to 2 minutes.
Let the potatoes cool 10 minutes, then gently crush them with your hands to expose the flesh. ... -potatoes/
