    I've made a version of sweet potato hash browns with fresh flaked crab meat on top. Yum!

    There are plenty of savory ways to serve sweet potatoes with adding sweeteners.

    I don't like using the oven in the summer so I put mine in the crockpot on low and let them cook overnight or while I'm at work, and then put whatever topping I'm in the mood for.

    Great idea! Do you use a rack of any kind, or just put them on the pot? Add any water/broth?

    I just clean them and throw them in plain. No rack, or water. They come out perfect every time.

    I peel and cut them into wedge shapes and put them in the microwave for 5 minutes. They taste a lot better than when they're boiled.

    I just had the best sweet potato I've ever tasted at a restaurant called Strip-T's in Watertown MA. It was a Japanese sweet potato (the inside is ivory colored, not orange) and they were cut into large slices, salted and then pan fried, salted and served with a house-made miso-garlic mayonnaise.

    Do the different types of sweet potatoes have any differences in things like fructose, raffinose etc? I don't do too well with golden sweet potatoes, was wondering if the others had less sugar and whatnot.

    I think I've got an orange one, but this is going to be my first try at cooking it~ pan fried slices. Probably in a mix of coconut oil and butter ~ tomorrow!

    Thanks everyone for the great ideas~

    Like chips? I don't have a dehydrator~ is there a way to do it in the oven?
    Yep, they are chips. I think you can do it in the oven, but it may take forever. I find it is the easiest with electric mandoline and dehydrator. One of the best things we got since going paleo/primal.
