About this Custom Cook
A sweet potato is a sweet potato is a sweet potato, right? Not anymore! Thanks to Brava and this custom cook, you can enjoy the most delicious sweet potatoes you have ever tasted!
Depending on the type of sweet potato you like to use (there are so many varieties), their size and how you like them cooked, you may need to use the adjustment slider for future cooks to customize the cook. Enjoy experimenting! They are always delicious! You always want the flat side to be golden brown in color, NEVER black in any way. The edges will be a very dark brown, this is normal for this cook. If you use ground pepper, you will see black spots on the potato and this is OK and normal.
The prep is so simple and takes all of a minute or two.
Place a small amount ghee (does not have to be a lot, but more than just a very thin layer) on the center of zone 2 of the GLASS tray where you plan to place the potatoes, I typically coat the entire zone for simplicity. If you are only using one potato, you can just put ghee in the center area.
Next, sprinkle the ghee lightly with salt and pepper.
Cut your sweet potatoes in half lengthwise, place them flat side down on the tray in zone 2 on top of the ghee. They can be placed lengthwise or widthwise. Depending on their size and how many you are cooking, you will need to determine the best way to fit them all in zone 2.
YES, they can be placed widthwise so you can fit more of them on the tray. Or if they Are narrow, you can place them horizontally side-by-side. And YES, it is OK if the tips or edges of the sweet potatoes extend about an inch or so into both zones 1 and zone 3. Just center them.
And you do not have to fill the zone completely. I often make just one potato. BUT it is a good idea to use potatoes that are around the same size.
(I may release a multi-zone cook in the future so more potatoes can be cooked at the same time.)
Coat the skin side of the sweet potatoes which are facing up with a light coating of ghee, then sprinkle with a bit of salt and pepper.
Slide your tray into the Brava, top level.
