Candied Sweet Potatoes
Old-fashioned, spiced and candied sweet potatoes are traditionally served for holiday meals—but don't let that stop you from serving them anytime.
6 medium sweet potatoes, cooked and sliced
1/2 cup dark corn syrup
1/4 cup packed brown sugar
1/4 cup butter
1/4 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1/4 teaspoon all-spice
- Place sweet potato slices in a baking dish. Sprinkle potatoes with cinnamon and all-spice. Drizzle corn syrup and spread the brown sugar over the sweet potatoes in the baking dish. Add butter in pats on top of sweet potatoes.
- Place in 350°F (175°C) oven and bake for approximately 20 to 30 minutes. Potatoes should be basted several times with the syrup. Syrup should thicken. Remove from syrup and serve.
Makes 6 servings.
