As highlighted by an Eater piece, one of the most unusual, but delicious ways to make sweet potatoes is rather simple and involves freezing them. This tip comes from the head chef at Junzi, Lucas Sin, who has been entertaining his followers with unique recipes through the pandemic. What exactly does he recommend doing while making sweet potatoes? Well, to begin with, he asks home chefs to scrub tiny potatoes and pop them into the freezer for a couple of hours before roasting them in the oven at 450 degrees. Yum.
This is a tried-and-tested method that’s often used in China and Sin’s Instagram followers are loving it. One of them mentioned that recreating the dish was a rather nostalgic experience for them and took them straight to China. Aww! Another commentator wrote, “I thought I liked baked sweet potatoes before, but now I love them! The texture and taste of the roasted skins go so well with the sweet flesh.” Tempted to try this hack yet?
