gluten free label

Ingredients

  • 1 pound sweet potatoes, peeled
  • 1/2 teaspoon orange peel, finely shredded
  • 1/2 cup orange juice
  • 1 tablespoon brown sugar
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1/8 teaspoon ground allspice

Method

Step 1

Cut the potatoes into large slices then cut the slices in half. Bring 1 inch of water to boiling in a large skillet. Add sweet potatoes and reduce heat. Cover and simmer for 20 minutes or until potatoes are tender. Drain well.

Step 2

Meanwhile, for the sauce, in a small bowl combine orange peel, orange juice, molasses or brown sugar, salt, cinnamon and allspice. Pour over the cooked potatoes in the skillet. Bring to a gentle boil and simmer, uncovered, for 5 minutes or until potatoes are glazed, spooning sauce over the potatoes occasionally.

Variation:

  • Substitute molasses for the brown sugar for an even deeper, richer flavor.
