    I decided last week i wanted to try a few new veg and fruit that ive never tried or cooked with before... and here we come to my dilemma.

    i have sweet potato and i CANNOT get them to go crispy in the oven :(
    I have tried par boiling, not par boiling, cooking them for 45 mins, higher temp and the list goes on. I even tried usin a potato chipper - needless to say that didnt work and nearly injured myself lol

    Anyways just wondered if anyone would be my kitchen fairy and had a solution for me?

    Thanks in advance :D

    Are you leaving the skin on?

    I've not tried it with sweet potato but when I use regular potatoes leaving the skin on crisps them up :) x

    180 degrees for 45 mins. If they're not crushing up then first bake them until they're cooked then crank the heat up.
