packed brown sugar
This is an easy and great tasting receipe. I changed it a little; I used maple syrup instead of brown sugar. I also cut the sweet potatoes in chunks raw, placed them in a buttered covered casserole dish and pour the sauce mixture over them, put them in a 375 degree oven for approx. an hour until the potatoes were done. Less time in the kitchen and less cleanup. Will use it again!
Not at all as expected and the preparation is a bit much for a cooking holiday that is over-taxed to begin with.
Yams were very good. I added cinnamon and vanilla extract to the recipe. Next time I will reduce or cut out the orange juice. I found the juice to be a bit overpowering.
This recipe is great~ I made a few changes to it. I used yams instead of sweet potatoes. The color and the taste of the dish turned out better with yams~ I didn't add the orange juice to it also, so that it can caramelized~ It tasted just as good without the orange juice! I will make this dish again, but next time, I'll add less butter to it~
This is almost the same as the one I make every year except I add about 1/4 teas of cinnamon and precook the sweet potatoes then slice and put in the candied sauce. I have made the day before and then put the in the oven to heat while making the gravey. Have been asked many times to bring these to pot lucks.
This was very good - easy and delicious. The orange juice adds a wonderful taste - if you have any doubts, add a little, taste it and decide if you want to add more. I also sliced the potatoes and boiled them with the skin on. After they were tender, I drained the water, let them cool and then cubed the potatoe slices. It is easier to cut cooked sweet potatoes then raw ones.
Mmmmmm, mmmmmmm good. Everyone asked for seconds~~and for the recipe!
Thanks for sharing!
This is an excellent recipe for sweet potatoes and very easy. It also works well with pineapple juice instead of orange juice.
