Freeze Sweet Potatoes Before Baking For The Best Results
Freezing sweet potatoes before baking them makes the water content in the spuds expand, leading to ruptured cell walls, which results in nice soft-textured potatoes after thawing.
The lower temperature also supports the development of sweet flavors and delightful aromas. To freeze-bake sweet potatoes, begin by washing the spuds and drying them.
Place them in the freezer for at least three hours. Once frozen solid, remove the potatoes and arrange them on a baking sheet wrapped individually in aluminum foil.
Bake the potatoes in a 300-degree F oven for two hours (or until tender), then crank up the heat to 450 degrees, unwrap the potatoes, and cook them for 40 more minutes.
