All the recipes I find for them involve roasting or baking, but is it okay to just boil the suckers? I have a hazy memory of making a savory mashed sweet potatoes with shallots, but I don't remember the oven being involved. Would peeling and boiling be bad for the texture or taste? Or should I bake them in the skins, scoop out the flesh, and then add the shallots etc.
Very grateful for any guidance!
