Instant Pot Sweet Potatoes

So I got an instant Pot for my birthday in December and it is my new favorite thing. I know, I know. I am behind the times on this trend.

But I am so glad I have one now because it is so useful and versatile. The version I have is an updated model that has WiFi so I can link it to my phone and check on it from outside the house. Didn’t even know they made ones like that! When I opened it I was so excited.. props to my dad! Anyways…

This is by far my favorite way to make sweet potatoes. It cuts the time down by 2/3 and the product is better!
