Again. I like candy. I haven’t tried candied sweet potato, though. This recipe at bettycrocker.com is an easy recipe for it, and yes, I realize it’s a side dish, not actual candy, but it still makes my sweet tooth sit up and take notice.
Classic Candied Sweet Potatoes
Prep Time: 15 min Cook Time: 50 min Yield: 6 servings
- 6 medium sweet potatoes or yams (2 pounds)
- 1/3 cup packed brown sugar
- 3 tablespoons butter or margarine
- 3 tablespoons water
- 1/2 teaspoon salt
Scrub sweet potatoes, but do not peel. Place potatoes in 3-quart saucepan. Add enough water just to cover. Heat to boiling; reduce heat to low. Cover and simmer 20 to 25 minutes or until tender. Drain; cool slightly. Slip off skins. Cut into 1/2-inch slices.
Heat remaining ingredients in 10-inch skillet over medium heat, stirring constantly, until smooth and bubbly. Add potatoes. Gently stir until glazed and hot.
