Candied Sweet Potatoes

My town is known as the Yam Capital of the United States. These candied sweet potatoes go well with baked ham or roasted turkey.

    10 servings

Ingredients

  • 3 pounds sweet potatoes
  • 1/2 cup packed brown sugar
  • 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1/4 cup butter, cubed
  • 1/4 cup corn syrup

Directions

  • Place the sweet potatoes in a Dutch oven and cover with water. Cover and bring to a boil; boil gently 30-45 minutes or until potatoes can be easily pierced with the tip of a sharp knife.
  • While potatoes cool, preheat oven to 375°. When sweet potatoes are cool enough to handle, peel potatoes and cut into wedges. Place in an ungreased 11x7-in. baking dish. Sprinkle with brown sugar and cinnamon. Dot with butter; drizzle with corn syrup.
  • Bake, uncovered, 15-20 minutes or until bubbly, basting with sauce occasionally.
