Baking/Storing Sweet Potatoes

I would like to tell you how I store sweet potatoes. I wash and dry the sweet potatoes then I grease them with Crisco or lard. Then I place them on a cookie sheet and bake at 350 degrees F. until done. Oh, yes, you should prick them with a fork or knife so they will not explode.

Let them cool and wrap each one with Reynolds wrap (not the heavy duty) and place in a plastic bag and freeze. They will keep almost forever. When ready to use, just remove the number wanted and run hot water over them. The peeling will come off easily. Then prepare just as fresh boiled. They can be heated in the microwave and will be like fresh baked.
