Cooking sweet potatoes on sous-vide is a good idea. The water bath cooks the sweet potatoes slowly preventing breakage and final results will be a firm but velvety consistency with lots of flavor.

The FoodSaver® V4440 system creates an airtight seal to lock in freshness and allows the condiments to infuse the sweet potatoes to perfection. Not to mention consistent cooking results preventing the floating during sous vide cooking. It is important to use appropriate bags or vacuum seal rolls when using the FoodSaver® V4440. The box includes vacuum seal bags, vacuum zipper bags, and containers designed to work together with vacuum sealers for optimal performance.

Airtight seal to lock in freshness

The FoodSaver has an airtight seal to lock in freshness.

However, I like the FoodSaver® 3PK 11″ Vacuum Seal Rolls too. Same as the bags, the rolls have a unique multi-layer construction, designed to withstand boiling water temperatures and are BPA free. Love the versatility of this product as you can take the vacuum-sealed dish from the freezer directly to the water bath without thawing.

But what is sous-vide cooking?

Sous-vide means “under vacuum” in French. It is a gourmet culinary technique long used by chefs worldwide but now is accessible to home cooks like us. The sous-vide cooking technique involves cooking food in vacuum-sealed bags, submerged in a water bath held at a precisely controlled temperature. If you want the perfect boiled or poached eggs, a steak, a salmon, or a turkey cooked as chefs do, sous-vide is the way to go.

This is a simple and easy recipe to make

Vegetables like potatoes and other roots are also great on sous-vide. This cooking technique will retain the natural flavor and no more mushy veggies. I have been cooking on sous-vide for several years now and I have discovered other uses. Such as pickling and cooking pre-made frozen ravioli. Pretty surprising right?

The trick for cooking on sous-vide is to learn how to manage the temperature and the time, because despite the fact sous-vide is easy to use,  meats can be overcooked and eggs could end up not perfect if the temperature is not managed correctly. And now that I have my FoodSaver® V4440 cooking the best chipotle butter sweet potatoes on sous-vide is a breeze.

A fantastic combination. The sweetness of the sweet potatoes with the smokey spice of the chipotle sauce is a duo that belongs together. I haven’t tried the sous vide method but I’d love to try. One of the items I do want to purchase is a food saver.

We love sweet potato in our house and this would go down a treat. I am a huge fan of chipotle as well. Smoke chipotle sounds like a great idea. Saving this for later.
