Tips from the Betty Crocker Kitchens

  • tip 1
    The Instant Pot™ is your secret weapon for easily peeling just about anything, including foods that are otherwise fussy. Hard-boiled eggs, beets, butternut squash, and now, sweet potatoes are coaxed from their peels and cooked until tender under pressure. Give it a try in our Instant Pot™ Sweet Potato Casserole.
  • tip 2
    Sweet potatoes are available in varieties ranging from pale skin with light yellow flesh to dark orange or red skin and flesh. They're often mistakenly called yams, but true yams are not sweet potatoes.
  • tip 3
    Cutting the sweet potatoes in half helps fit even the most strangely-shaped taters nicely in the Instant Pot™. Plus, the peels will slide right off after steaming.
