Leaving a little water on the potatoes helps generates just enough moist heat to make these sweet potatoes wonderfully tender, never dried out. In our test, medium sized sweet potatoes took a full 6 hours on low to be cooked through. Adjust the cooking time as needed based on the size of the sweet potatoes or how your particular crock pot heats.

REVIEW: 5 star recipe rating
I love baked sweet potatoes but hate to oven bake them in the summer. This version works just as well and keeps them moist (similar to cooking in foil in the oven). My crock pot takes longer though closer to 8 hours.
