We grew a lot of sweet potatoes from our garden last year and this is one of the yummiest dishes we've made with them (not necessarily the healthiest because of all the sugar, but were DELICIOUS!).
This is an old-fashioned, traditional, southern recipe.
Southern Candied Sweet Potatoes
About 6 normal large sweet potatoes 1 teaspoon cinnamon
1/2 cup butter 1 teaspoon nutmeg
1 3/4 cups white sugar 1 tablespoon vanilla extract
1/4 cup brown sugar salt to taste
Well, in the ingredients above, I said about 6 sweet potatoes, but ours we're all random sized and shaped. First, cut sweet potatoes into slices.
Third, mix the sugar, cinnamon, nutmeg, and salt together in a bowl. Cover the sweet potatoes in the sugar mixture and stir. Next cover the skillet, reduce heat to low, and cook til potatoes are "candied" (takes about 1 hour). They should be tender and the sauce will turn dark. Stir occasionally while cooking. Stir in the vanilla extract just before serving. Serve while hot. Enjoy!
How do y'all normally prepare sweet potatoes?
