World’s Easiest No Peel Sweet Potatoes

You’ve heard of fall of the bone tender. Well, this is fall out of the skin sweet potatoes. It occurred to me while I performed this shortcut I’ve never shared it. Thus another pot was going the next day to show you how this is truly the world’s easiest way to peel  a sweet potato.

Step 1: Wash and cut the potatoes in half or thirds if they are long fat ones.

Step 2: Bring them to a boil on high heat and reduce to a medium high heat. A wooden spoon placed over the edge will keep the water from boiling over :)

Step 3: Drain the potatoes in a colander and allow to cool to the touch (about fifteen to thirty minutes depending how many you are preparing).

Step 4: Slide the potato out of the skin right into a serving bowl. Or you can mash the sweet potatoes with a mixer and allow to cool completely. Bag in labeled quart size bags for future use. Have you tried substituting mashed sweet potato for pumpkin in muffins?

Serving Suggestions:

  • Eat hot mashed potatoes with butter, cinnamon and brown sugar
  • Sprinkle smashed potatoes with mini marshmalllows and broil until lightly toasted.
  • Freeze in quart size bags just like butternut for future use. Add to sneaky soups, chili and marinara sauces.
  • Puree in food processor with a few tablespoons water and freeze in ice cube trays for baby or toddler food. Freeze and move cubes to a quart size freezer bag with air vacuumed out.
Have you tried another world’s easiest recipe? How about the world’s easiest boiled egg (no peel, bumper car style)?
What is your favorite way to eat sweet potatoes? Will you eat them more often now that you don’t have to peel them?
