I eat sweet potatoes (not Yam) regularly to help control blood pressure. I cook it in the microwave at a Potato setting. Then, while watching a Japanese TV show, this woman side-kick was giving everyone a package of "HOSHI IMO", and that gave me the idea. HOSHI IMO in Japan is steamed and then dried. I enjoyed it when I was a child. It's a sweet and chewy treat. The commercial ones are loaded with 'whatever' that are not healthy for us. Since I have been using the dehydrator to make HOSHI KAKI - dried persimmons, I thought why not make the dried sweet potatoes. I also wanted to test out the InstaPot pressure cooker. I normally pressure cook potatoes over my gas stove. It's done in 3 minutes. And, so did InstaPot in 4 minutes. Perfect.
Once it is cooked, I let it sit for 10+ min to cool. Set the valve to "Release". Unlock the lid. There they are. Beautiful.
Peel and slice. Dehydrate. Hope they will turn out as good as the one sold at the store.
