This recipe has zero prep time! I just wash them and throw them right in the slow cooker then turn it on low 8 hours, or if I have less time I cook it high 3 1/2 to 4 hours. You can put as many sweet potatoes as you like as long as they fit, just stack them and make sure the cover closes. You will know they are ready when a knife slides in easily when poked.

And since so many are asking, although I have and love my Instant Pot, I still love my slow cooker! I have the 6 Quart Hamilton Beach Set ‘n Forget Programmable Slow Cooker (affil link). I love it because you can adjust the time you want it to cook, and it automatically turns to warm when it’s done. It also has a probe for meat that automatically shuts off when done. I hated my old crock pot, it burnt everything and my food had a weird taste. This slow cooker is so great, I actually own several!
