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)

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.
