Candied Sweet Potato

My wife decided that we should make candied sweet potato from scratch.  This recipe worked well


  • 3.5 lbs Fresh Sweet potatoes

  • 8 oz Butter 1

  • cup Brown Sugar

  • 1 cup White Sugar

  • 1/4 cup Water

  • Salt & Pepper to taste

  • 1 bag mini marshmallows


  • Wash & peel sweet potatoes.

  • In a pot add the sweet potatoes and water.  Put on the stove at medium low heat.

  • Add in the butter, both sugars and a sprinkle of salt.  Cover the pot.  Let simmer until the potatoes are cooked and the color of the caramel is what you want.

  • I transferred the potatoes to a cast iron skillet.  Bring the mixture back to a simmer.  

  • Add on marshmallow and broil in the oven until golden brown.

  • E'ai ka kou!!!
