Sometimes recreation of old post is good…Syrup Coated Sweet Potato

As Autumn vibes are in full swing, what I put on my dining table also has autumn vibes! 


When the autumn season hits, my dinner buddy always asks me to cook something with sweet potatoes. He isn’t a big fan of pumpkins or squash, but every time there are sweet potatoes, his eyes brighten up and asks ”What do you cook with them? 


This is actually the exact same recipe from my previous post, but since it’s absolutely delicious I wanted to share it again.

A step is ok to be tiny, but when you keep going, you’ll know how far you’ve come. by Tanooki😂


And here are some cooking tips when you cook this yummy sweet potato snack…


  1. Use Japanese Yam. There are tons of potatoes called “Sweet Potatoes” or “Sweet Yam” or “Yam Potatoes” but their texture is so different from how much moisture they contain. Japanese Yam gives you the perfect starchy texture.   
  2. DO NOT OVERLOAD SWEET POTATO especially when you’re using an air fryer that stirs when cooking!


I was cooking the treats the other day, and I was a little worried that maybe I overloaded the pan too much, but I proceeded cooking hoping it’s not that big deal…and a disaster happened. 


My airfryer was Actifry from T-fal which comes with a stirring paddle.The cutting of sweet potatoes was random, so I guess some of the sweet potato chunks stuck in the pan and when the paddle was stirring, it couldn’t stand the force and broke! 


Now I have my air fryer without an essential tool…I’d been using it for 7 years and it’s so sad saying goodbye to it…


So readers, do you have any recommendations for an air fryer? I researched a little bit and the one from Ninja seems good, but still I’m debating from one to the other. There are tons of choices!!


Anyways, hope you enjoy my syrup coated sweet potatoes. It’s good, definitely promised treats to make you smile!

      Haha, that’s true! I see a lot of sweet potato recipes but a lot of them adds sweet touch even for a savory one!

      Like sweet potato fries got fans in a restaurant over regular fries, but almost always they comes with HONEY mustard on the side🤣🍠💕✨

    I did not know about Japanese Yam. but here we have a big difference between sweet potatoes that have white flesh and red skin and yams that have orange flesh and pale orange or brownish skins. I like the yams best.

      Hi Anne, I know exactly what you are talking about! Japanese yam are so similar to sweet potato, and one day I bought some thinking that’s same as what I was looking for, and that was quite a shocking experience😂

    Oh my goodness! not the kind the thing you’d want happening to an essential piece of equipment! I feel for you … it’s terrible when something stops working, particularly in the kitchen!

      You’re so right! I posted about it on IG and one of the representative contacted me to offer support…mine is 7+ years old so the warranty expired long ago, but I’ll see what I can do…even in worst scenario of needs to buy the new one, the holiday shopping season is coming😂🎁

        That is excellent Customer Service right there! I hope you enjoy buying your next Airfryer. I resisted getting one for ages, but since we got ours a couple of years ago, I can’t imagine how we got along without one!

    Nice photos! I am sorry about your air fryer by the way. I love mine. It is a very basic one from DASH. No bells and whistles but it is great for a small counter space like my kitchen. Your syrup coated sweet potatoes remind me of a Filipino street snack called kamote cue (sweet potato bbq). I found this link if you are interested to see what it is: I love anything sweet potatoes and yours look very yummy as well. 🙂

      Hi Leah! I checked the one from DASH too! It’s a good size, I got a small kitchen too so maybe it’s good for me…🤔

      I just checked the link, and yeah it’s a very similar one👀✨🍠 I wonder if they’re using general sweet potato, the one got orange skin with lighter shade of orange flesh…my neighbor don’t have Japanese yam so buying them is a special occasion thing:(

        Hi, I bought two DASH air fryers. One was the compact one that I brought to my office to share with my coworkers. We all enjoy it for warming up French fries, even toasting bread! Then I got a 2.6 quart for home. It is so simple, just a dial and has no temperature adjustment but it is perfect for us. My sister has the fancy one where you can fry an entire chicken. I do not need that one (yet)! Please share what you decided to get for your new air fryer. 🙂
