Are they OK to eat? I didn't notice and discoloring before I cooked them, and the butternut squash & apples I cooked them with look fine. I cooked them with butter, maple syrup, nutmeg & cinnamon. Is dinner ruined?

Thank you so much for the quick reply - I was freaking out! Now that I've tried them, I can confirm that they are delicious!

They can get dark spots when they are exposed to air after being peeled.

" If you do peel the potatoes before cooking, store them in a bowl of cold water until you cook them, as the air will cause a raw, peeled sweet potato to oxidize and turn brown."

It is harmless.
