How to avoid Burnt Skin on Baked Sweet Potato

waru | Feb 22, 2009 08:50 AM

We found a better and healthier baked potato. It is a baked Sweet Potato. We only have one problem with this. My wife has baked it two different. ways. First she tried pricking the potato with a fork. The juices seeped out during the baking process and made a mess. Then she tried to bake it without pricking. Now the skin becomes paper dry, and burnt on the inside. I love to eat the skin but now it is always burnt.

Any suggestions on how to avoid these burnt skins on a baked sweet potato?
