Directions

  1. Boil cut-up sweet potatoes or bake at 350 degrees F (175 degrees C) whole sweet potatoes until tender.
  2. In a frying pan, melt the butter and brown sugar together until bubbly. Add the orange juice and stir until smooth. Add the cut-up sweet potatoes and cook slowly, turning occasionally until the sweet potatoes are caramelized, about 20 minutes. If syrup is too thin, add a bit more brown sugar.

These are to die for! I make these sweet potatoes every holiday we get! :) Make sure you boil the sweet potatoes until just a tad bit under done. That way when you cook them in the butter and brown sugar, they'll cook the rest of the way there and not break up and turn to mush. edited to add...you need to add another 3/4 cup brown sugar to make the sauce not runny. I also cut the orange juice a tad too.

These were yummy! I used 3 large sweet potatoes and instead of baking for boiling them, I microwaved them until finished and then peeled the skin off and cubed them. I also added a cinnamon spice mix to give it some flavor while cooking...I think that made them even better! My husband loved them! I had it as a side dish to "awesome honey pecan prok chops". SO YUMMY! O

I liked the potatoes, and do agree that they are not overly sweet, but I thought it was difficult to get the potatoes to the right consistency. My advice: leave them slightly firm before adding them to the sauce. After cooking for 20 more minutes, mine were too soft and mushy.
