No recipe image available.Give traditional candied sweet potatoes a new twist with snappy orange flavor and a speedy skillet method.

Recipe Ingredients:

1 pound sweet potatoes, peeled and sliced 1/2-inch thick
1/2 teaspoon finely shredded Florida orange peel
1/2 cup Florida orange juice
2 tablespoons brown sugar, packed or molasses
1 tablespoon butter or margarine
1/2 teaspoon pumpkin pie spice
1/4 teaspoon salt

Cooking Directions:

  1. Place sweet potatoes in a 12-inch skillet; cover with boiling water and cook, covered, about 10 minutes or until potatoes are tender. Drain well.
  2. Meanwhile, for sauce, in a small mixing bowl combine orange peel, orange juice, brown sugar or molasses, butter, pumpkin pie spice, and salt. Pour over the cooked potatoes in the skillet. Cook and stir until bubbly. Boil gently, uncovered, about 5 minutes or until potatoes are glazed, spooning sauce over potatoes occasionally.

Makes 4 servings.
