Who has time to candy and bake and peel sweet potatoes!
After my niece brought half cooked sweet potatoes to a family dinner, I learned this trick!
You can nuke them and they taste just a well as if you cooked them for an hour and a half.
Salvaged them and now this is the way Thanksgiving goes in the microwave.
