Baked sweet potatoes making a mess?

Hi juliejulez,

Thanks for the response. I think that's what I'm going to try next.

Does the sap end up burning as it pools on the foil?

Baked sweet potatoes making a mess?

Hello everyone,

I have been baking sweet potatoes in the oven, using the "poke holes in the potato so the steam can get out and the potato won't explode" method.

The problem is that during the course of baking, there seems to be some sort of sugary sap that oozes out of the potato, runs down the side of the potato, and then ends up on the bottom of the oven, where it chars and makes a terrible smell.

Am I doing something wrong? Thanks in advance!

P.S. I am baking the potatoes at 400-450 F for 60 minutes.

Uncle Ray's Potato Chips in Toronto?

I think you can find them at any Hasty Market. I've seen them at two Hasty Markets in Etobicoke: Burnhamthorpe & Saturn Rd., and Rathburn & West Mall.

You can also find them in Guelph at the Little Short Stop line of convenience stores.
