To make them, just scrub sweet potatoes, poke with a fork and bake the same as you would bake regular potatoes.
Add some butter and cinnamon and it is a delicious treat.
My husband had always hated sweet potatoes... the ones he had were always sweetened with sugar or marshmallows and he couldn't stand them. After he got over the idea of hating sweet potatoes, he found that he really liked them when fixed this way... or the way I fix them in casseroles. Recently, he told me he "loves" sweet potatoes! Wow. :)
Sometimes we share a couple of potatoes among the whole family.... and sometimes we make enough and everyone has their own sweet potato.
Sweet potatoes are also quite easy to grow.... and some of the best sweet potatoes we ever had came from our own garden-they had such wonderful flavor. They can be sprouted for the garden and grown.... the directions for sprouting are here:

Sometimes, we have baked sweet potatoes AND regular baked potatoes at the same meal. Mmm good. :)
Sweet potatoes have enough natural sweetness that they really don't need any sugar, but they are wonderful when fixed in a more savory way.
