20 Ways To Eat: Sweet Potato # 15

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.
