“My husband's cousin prepared the sweet potatoes this way for a family reunion type Thanksgiving a couple of years ago. We love them for a change of pace from candied yams and sweet potato casseroles, and they are oh so much better for you.”

Directions

  1. Peel and slice sweet potatoes into sticks about 1 inch thick (like fat french fries).
  2. Place in a large pot and add water until barely covered.
  3. Add orange, sugar, and seasonings to taste.
  4. Cook until crisp-tender: bring to a boil, reduce heat, boil gently for 5 to 8 minutes. (Nothing mushy here. There should still be some resistence in the bite.).
  5. Serve in syrup (cooking liquid). It's so pretty with the orange slices floating in it.
