    Take a sweet potato, dampen the skin with water, make a small slit in the skin. Wrap it in aluminum foil, bake at 350 degrees F for an hour+.

    Wrapping them tightly in aluminum foil after wetting the skin while baking at a lower temperature for a long time will slowly steam and caramelize them. You really want to put a cookie sheet under them because they will likely leak, and if sweet potato syrup drips on the bottom of the oven it turns into a thick, viscous, black asphalt-like goop. It is awful. Do not make the mistake of baking them on the racks.

    Sweet potatoes with higher sugar contents will work best. If you can find Japanese Satsumaimo's...you just hit the jackpot.

    I started making a mash for holidays instead of those sickenly sweet potatoes with marshmallows. I boil 2.5lbs peeled sweet potatoes until tender, beat them with 2 large eggs, 1-2T maple syrup, 1T vanilla, 1t salt and 2t lemon juice. Put them back into a baking dish and top with a small amount of brown sugar mixed with butter and chopped nuts (pistachios!). I bake them for about 40 more minutes at 350.

    They are REALLY good! You could probably add your homemade marshmallows to the topping.

    So heres my plan:

    chop up 2 sweet potatoes in cubes and put in a dish. melt 3 tbsp each of butter, maple syrup, and coconut sugar together and pour over the cubes and toss it all to coat. throw some foil over the pan and bake in the oven for 45 mins or so then take off the foil and cover with my homemade marshmallows and a coconut/cashew streusel topping.

    sound good? will this give me the results i desire? or should i roast or bake the cubes before pouring the syrup mix over it?

    yeah you are

    I mean there's so many ants in my eyes! And there are so many TVs, microwaves, radios... I think, I can't, I'm not 100% sure what we have here in stock.. I don't know because I can't see anything! Our prices, I hope, aren't too low!

    Ive always baked the sweet potatoes whole before peeling/chop up, add butter/sweet stuff,then roast in a pan until I remember to take them out (usally 20-30 minutes incl. 5 minutes for mallow topping)
    Every time I hear the dirty word 'exercise', I wash my mouth out with chocolate.

    try this just once

    take any sweet you desire.

    wake up on day off. turn oven on to 225
    wrap said potato in foil after a liberal application of the fat of your choice ( butter, coconut, butter )

    place in oven

    come back in 4 - 6 hours.

    all you do is add brown sugar, butter and bake. It will caramelize all by itself. I make them every thanksgiving.

    If your sweet potato is not so sweet, I'm going to say honey would be a useful sweetener to add.
