Microwave Sweet Potatoes, Fire Warning


I was quick cooking a sweet potato in the microwave tonight. I smelled something burning like wood or paper. The potato had caught fire and was about 1/2 inch charcoal black on the bottom. Surprise yes but the second and much worse time. I have made regular potatoes for years and no problem.
Must be some chemical in them as with grapes but maybe not the same.

I microwave sweet potatoes regularly.
Less starch than white potato.

Lay sweet potato in bowl with 3/4" water beneath potato.
Water boils helping keep potato moist.

Large potato has to be flipped over after 3.5-5 minutes cook time.
I set timer twice so as not to forget, while multi-tasking.

Please share Sweet Potato recipes.

Hopefully y’all are eating more than just a plain Sweet Potato?

I’ve been eating oven baked (about an hour) Sweet Potato, and topping it with butter, and a sprinkling of dried powdered Ginger, and maybe a dollop of Sour Cream. It tastes good that way, but it gets boring after a while.

I’ve read if a person had to survive eating nothing but only one type of vegetable his entire life, the Sweet Potatoe would be the healthiest choice because compared to all other vegetables, the Sweet Potato has the most variety of nutrients.

Try butter and brown sugar. Tastes like sweet potato pie.

Step one. Bake sweet potato and regular potato together.
Step two. Throw sweet potato in the trash.
Step three. Eat the much better regular potato covered in butter and bacon.

Sweet potatos are better for diabetics than are white potatoes.
Butter and pepper only.
Never use sugar of any type.

I like to sprinkle some Slap Ya Mama Cajun seasoning on mine. Sometimes also a bit of butter.

Chop, please stop marinating them in gasoline.

I have just started eating them as part of a diet.

I enjoy them with butter, cinnamon, nutmeg, brown sugar, maple syrup, marshmallows, & fresh cream.

I haven’t lost any weight yet, but my teeth have never been softer.
