So, as you saw in my earlier post. I promised cookies & soup to my favorite neighbor boy. & I’m also cooking dinner for my family of six.
I’ve got homemade frozen soup thawing, cookies baking, now on to my candied yams. 😉
Here’s what you need:
5-6 large sweet potatoes – orange
2 cups white sugar
2 cups brown sugar
2 tsp salt
1 stick salted sweet cream butter
dutch oven/large pot with lid
Optional: 2 1/2 c mini marshmallows for a super yummy topping!
Preheat to 350F.
Start by peeling the sweet potatoes, & cutting into 1″-ish chunks.
Place in dutch oven & cover with water. Add salt & boil about 20-30 minutes until fork tender. 🙂
Grease a 9×13″ glass baking dish.
Once the sweet potatoes are fork tender, drain, rinse, & pour into baking dish.
Cover with both kinds of sugar, mixing it all up, then spot with butter.
Bake for approx. 30 minutes then remove from oven, adding marshmallows & then back into the oven they go for another 25-ish minutes – until the marshmallows are brown.
