Expert Tips

Sweet potatoes vary greatly in size. Purchasing them by weight assures the correct amount for this recipe.

These toasty roasted sweet potatoes pair perfectly with your Thanksgiving turkey. Cranberry sauce and steamed asparagus make great accompaniments.

Sweet potatoes are usually available with pale or dark orange skin and flesh. The dark orange sweet potatoes are the moister, sweeter and more flavorful of the two, and they are often mistakenly labeled "yams."
