Thanksgiving is this week and to celebrate I want to share my families recipe. Americans love their holidays and what a better way to say Happy Thanksgiving. You will never buy sweet potatoes in a can after tying these beauties. They are not the super sweet kind nor the marshmallow topped variety.
- 4 baked sweet potatoes (you can prebake the day before)
- 1/2 cup brown sugar
- 1/8 cup orange juice
- 1/8 c water
- 3 Tablespoons butter
- dash salt
- dash cinnamon
Combine all ingredients except sweet potatoes and simmer to make a syrup. Test after 10 minutes you want to make syrup not candy.
Cut cooked sweet potatoes lengthwise into a greased 8×8 pan.
Pour syrup over the top
Bake 375 degree preheated oven 30 minutes basting frequently.
