I cooked sweet potatoes in a similar way before and they burned. Can you clarify---for this recipe should you be using a shiny tray or a dark tray? I cannot remember which tray I used before and which one, therefore, cooks faster. Thank you very much.

Hi Pam, I roasted sweet potatoes last night cut into chunks on 400 deg. for about 40 minutes on a sheet with parchment paper. They turned out great. The recipe called for only 30 minutes of roasting. That would have been good. The potatoes didn't burn they were delicious, but maybe a little too mushy.
