. . . BAKED SWEET POTATOES . . .
Wash and dry sweet potatoes of uniform size. Bake in a hot oven (42.5° F.) 40 to 60 minutes or until tender. If you want the skin to be soft, rub a little fat on the sweet potatoes before baking; Cut criss-cross gashes in the skin of the sweet potatoes on one side, then pinch the sweet potatoes so that some of the soft inside pops through the opening. Drop in meat drippings, bits of crisp cooked salt pork, or table fat.
Save fuel by baking sweet potatoes when you ovencook other food. If a moderate oven is called for, allow a little extra time for the sweet potatoes to bake.
