  • 6- quart programmable slow cooker


  • 3 lbs sweet potatoes


  • Take a wet paper towel and scrub any dirt off of the potatoes. 
  • Place the potatoes into the slow cooker insert. The larger potatoes should go onto the bottom, and then you stack the smaller ones on top.
  • Set the slow cooker to cook on low for 8 hours or high for 5-6 hours. 


Storage tips
Cooked sweet potatoes can be stored in glass containers in the fridge for up to 5 days. To reheat the potatoes, place them in a microwave-safe dish and microwave on high for 1-2 minutes or until hot. Reheat In the microwave.
You can also scoop out the flesh and freeze it for up to 3 months. I suggest freezing into portions for quick sides or create a meal prep bowl with it. These silicone trays (Souper cubes) are great for freezing into 1-cup or more portions.
