Crock-Pot Sweet Potatoes With A Hint Of Orange


4-6 Sweet Potatoes
¼ Cup Water
Zest Of One Orange
Butter (or Dairy free margarine), Salt & Pepper To Taste


  1. Wash your sweet potatoes and you can choose either to peel them or not. I don’t mind the skins left on and they add a little extra fiber and vitamins so I usually leave them on.
  2. Cut sweet potatoes in quarters lengthwise and then into large chunks.
  3. Add sweet potatoes, water and orange zest to crock-pot.
  4. Cover and cook on high 2 hours or low 4 hours until potatoes are fork tender.
  5. Right in the crock-pot use a potato masher and mash sweet potatoes up, add butter, salt and pepper to taste. I usually add ½ stick of butter.

    I have my sweet potatoes in the crock pot, but they are turning black. Have you had this happen before? Thank you.

    Epic fail! On Thanksgiving no less! Maybe if you cut them into tiny chunks and left them to cook for 8 hours, or maybe 18 hours, you’d be okay. Wound up pulling the whole mess out of the crockpot & cooking them on the stove top. Hard as rocks…epic fail! Do not try!

    I tried this for a big family get together. Potatoes did not get soft. Sounds like a good recipe though. Will try with a bit more water and cut smaller
