Candied Sweet Potatoes

What You Need

6 medium sweet potatoes or yams
1/3 cup brown sugar
3 tablespoons butter
3 tablespoons orange juice
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 tablespoon grated orange peel (optional)
Marshmallows

Here's How

Boil sweet potatoes in salted water approximately 30 minutes. (This can be done the day before.) Remove skins. Slice sweet potatoes into about 1/2 inch slices and arrange in a 9x13x2-inch baking dish. Heat the brown sugar, butter, orange juice, salt, and orange peel in a pan over medium heat, stirring continuously until smooth and bubbly. Pour over sweet potatoes. Bake at 375 degrees for 20 to 30 minutes. Top with marshmallows the last 5 minutes of baking.
