Hi there,
I have a lonely sweet potato in my fridge...
I'm hoping to make some sweet potato wedges.
Do I need to peel it or can I leave the skin on?
Any hints and tips useful!
Thanks!

Either
I usually peel, cut into chip shapes, toss in oil and roast for 20 mins or so, my DSs favourite side dish. But you could just cut into wedges with the skin on and a little oil

Thank you! I think i'll leave the skin on and cut into wedges - saves me a job of peeling it. That is what I would do with a normal potato.
I'm a sweet potato virgin and didn't want to break any rules! hmmgrin

Skin on, large wedges, oil, salt and pepper and bake on about 200 for 20 mins or so. Amazing dipped into sour cream or that gorgeous Boursin garlic cheese if you have any. Yum.

Skin on, cut into wedges. I add a bit of cayenne pepper and salt and pepper.

Someone told me that you shouldn't eat the pointy ends. Not sure why/if it's true.

Is grease proof paper better to roast it on than tin foil?

Microwave, scoop out innards and have sweet potato mash. Then fill empty skins with a handful of grated cheese and whack in over til skins are crispy and cheese bubbling

I just roast on an oven tray, no foil or grease proof paper
