Do you have any tips on cutting them raw? They are so hard I have a hard time slicing them unless they are cooked.

Oh man, sweet potatoes are GOD'S FOOD!!!!!!!

Peel 'em. Slice 'em into fry like shapes. Pour melted beef fat over 'em, toss 'em with salt, pepper, some garlic powder, maybe some cinnamon, or chili pepper. Dump 'em onto a baking sheet, and bake the snot out of them at 400 degrees, or 425. Do check on them and toss 'em about.

I dare you NOT to destroy them when they come out of the oven. And not to burn the roof of your mouth ;)

Sweet potatoes with coconut oil are amazing, but BEEF FAT? Or duck fat? Or lard? OMFG!

My 'go to' lately has been to pre-bake a bunch of sweet potatoes at 400 for 60-90 mins depending on size (and make sure they are cooked through). Once cooled I deskin them and put them in the fridge in large tupperware 'naked.' I then just scoop out what I need, often taking them to work, and put them in a smaller tupperware with salt, pepper, and a spoon full of cold coconut oil. Microwave them up when I want to eat for a minute or so and then just mix/mash the potatoes and now melted coconut oil together. Easy and tastes great. Sometimes I'll add grass fed butter instead of coconut oil if I have it but I like the sweetness of the coconut oil.

Another fav but takes more work is sweet potato hash. Peel and dice sweet potatoes and then cook on medium heat in your oil of choice. Salt and pepper for me and that is it but you can certainly add whatever spices you like. Takes some attention to make sure you are crisping them up and not burning them - and for some reason it always takes longer to cook than I think so text a few before pulling off stove. Always good - and goes with just about everything well even a hardy breakfast or mixed in on the bottom of a frittata. I normally don't but you can add in whatever you like similar to normal hash such as onions, peppers, and meat of choice.
