Tips
  • Refrigerate within two hours of cooking.
  • Refrigerate in covered container or wrap tightly with heavy-duty aluminum foil or plastic wrap.
  • Boiled and sliced or mashed sweet potatoes freeze well; sprinkle first with a small amount of lemon juice to prevent discoloration.
  • Freeze in covered airtight containers or heavy-duty freezer bags.
  • Freezer time shown is for best quality only — foods kept constantly frozen at 0° F will keep safe indefinitely.
