I’m prepping, peeling and cutting, sweet potatoes to roast tomorrow. Should I cover them in water as I would a white potato?

Storing white potatoes in water under refrigeration, which restaurants do by the bucketful, saves from the oxidation effect of turning brown-ish purple. Sweet potatoes will suffer the same fate if not stored in water in a cold temperature. If you drain them well through a colander and turn them out onto kitchen towels before roasting, you'll be just fine. After all, you're going to roast them, right? At a relatively high temperature, right? Have no fear. Happy Thanksgiving.

Hi CindyB, I would store them in water and refrigerate them to prevent them from drying out overnight. Just be sure to dry them really well before you roast them tomorrow.
