Candied Sweet Potatoes

  • 6 medium-sized sweet potatoes
  • 1 cup corn or maple syrup
  • 1/2 cup brown sugar
  • 3 tablespoons butter
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
Boil potatoes until they are fairly tender but not done; cool, peel, and cut in lengthwise halves. Arrange the pieces in one layer in buttered baking dishes or a large shallow pan, - do not pack them close together. Boil the syrup, brown sugar, salt and butter until slightly thickened; pour atop sweet potatoes. Bake in moderately hot oven 375°-400°F., 45-60 minutes (be patient, you rascal). Turn the pieces carefully while cooking to brown them on all sides. Delicious with roast pork.
