Candied Sweet Potatoes
2 pounds sweet potatoes
1 cup orange juice
1/2 cup firmly packed dark brown sugar
1/3 cup dry sherry
2 tablespoons butter or margarine
1 tablespoon McCormick Orange Peel
1/2 teaspoon McCormick Ground Cinnamon
1/4 teaspoon McCormick Ground Ginger
1/8 teaspoon McCormick Ground Cloves
Scrub sweet potatoes and place in saucepan. Cover with cold
water and heat to boil. Cook just until barely tender and still
firm, about 25 to 35 minutes. Do not overcook. Drain and set
aside to cool slightly.
When cool enough to handle, peel potatoes and cut into 2-inch
pieces. Arrange in 8-inch square baking pan.
Place remaining ingredients in saucepan and heat to boil,
stirring. Boil 3 minutes and pour over potatoes.
Bake, uncovered, in 350 F oven 1 hour, basting often to glaze.
Makes 6 servings, cup each
