How do you store air-fryer sweet potato cubes?

Store air-fryer sweet potato cubes in an airtight container in the refrigerator for up to 3 to 5 days. Before prepping the recipe, keep the sweet potatoes in a cool and dry place like a pantry. (Keeping them in the refrigerator will make the center hard and the flavor not as pleasant.) Learn more about how to store potatoes the right way.

Can you leave the skins on the sweet potatoes?
