Candied Sweet Potatoes
These candied sweet potatoes have been standard fare at our Thanksgiving and
Christmas dinners for years. This is my Mother's recipe.
- 6 boiled sweet potatoes
- 1/2 cup brown sugar
- 2 tablespoons water
- 4 tablespoons butter
- Miniature marshmallows
- Wash and pare potatoes. Cook for 10 minutes in boiling, salted water.
- Drain; cut in halves lengthwise and put into a buttered pan.
- Make a syrup by boiling the sugar and water for 3 minutes. Add butter. Baste
potatoes with syrup.
- Bake slowly at 300 degrees F until tender. Sprinkle with miniature marshmallows
and pecans, and broil or bake until marshmallows are golden.
