To Peel or not to Peel?

Recommended Posts

When I bake sweet potatoes, leave the skins on and eat them. If I'm roasting them or using them in a hash, do I necessarily need to peel them?

Nope, entirely up to you... I don't peel them unless I'm planning to mash them.

Agreed, I almost never peel any kind of potato. I happen to like the crispy skins, plus so many of the nutrients can be found there. They only time I would suggest removing the skins for sweet potato is if you are putting them in the crockpot for some reason. I've found that they can get bitter cooking for that long.

I usually peel mine, or remove the skin after baking them whole.  I'm too lazy to thoroughly wash the skins before cooking and eating.  I feel like there is a ton of dirt on there that I can't get off.
