Air fry Daigaku Imo (Caramelized Sweet Potatoes)

This is a simple and delicious snack food from Japan and on occasion it is sold in the Japanese food fairs at Isetan or Takashimaya but they can be quite pricey for a small quantity so when I realized the snack is so simple to make I just have to try it.
