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!!!
