Prepping Vegetables.......sweet potatoes in particular
I have a 3 yr old so I need to do as much prep work while he's in school so when it comes time to make dinner, I can just throw everything together. I'm making a roast chicken tonight with a maple pepper glaze.....the recipe calls for roasting sweet potatoes in the pan along with the chicken. How far ahead can I peel and chop the sweet potatoes? Do I need to do anything to preserve the color and or flavor. I'm only talking about doing it 5-6 hrs ahead of when they'd be cooked. I know it's a relatively small task, but it's a tough one when a little one tugging on my leg.
Sorry if this is incoherent. I'm sleep deprived! Dang insomnia!
