Southern Candied Sweet Potatoes

GREENVILLE —

Southern Candied Sweet Potatoes

Charman Davis

6 large Sweet Potatoes

½ cup Butter

2 cups White Sugar

1 tsp Ground Cinnamon

1 tsp Ground Nutmeg

1 tbsp Vanilla Extract

Salt to taste

 

Peel the sweet potatoes and cut them into slices.  Melt the butter or margarine in a heavy skillet and add the sliced sweet potatoes.

Mix the sugar, cinnamon, nutmeg and salt.  Cover the sweet potatoes with sugar mixture and stir.  Cover skillet, reduce heat to low and cook for about 1 hour or until potatoes are ‘candied’. 

They should be tender but a little hard around the edges.  Also the sauce will turn dark.  You will need to stir occasionally during the cooking.  Stir in the vanilla just before serving.  Serve hot.
