I think sweet potatoes are served in many homes around Thanksgiving and Christmas. Here is a simple candied sweet potato recipe that we make on occasion. You may also like to try out Favorite Sweet Potato Casserole.
Candied Sweet Potatoes
- 6 medium sweet potatoes, parboiled, peeled and halved lengthwise
- 1 c. light brown sugar
- juice of one navel orange (optional)
- 2 T. butter
In a large skillet, combine the sugar, orange juice, and butter.
Heat over medium heat until blended and smooth.
Add the sweet potatoes and simmer, uncovered, for about 20 minutes.
Baste and turn the potatoes frequently to glaze evenly.
