An all American recipe from my good friend Rose in Boston, Mass. really for Thanksgiving, but adaptable :-)
- 4 1/2 pounds sweet potatoes
- 9 tbsp butter
- 1 cup cider
- 1 cup orange
- 1/2 cup plus 1 tbsp light brown sugar
- 1 cinnamon stick
Preheat oven to 400 oF. Parboil peeled sweet potatoes, sliced into 1/2 to 3/4 inch slices. Arrange sweet potatoes in a greased casserole dish. Combine cider, orange juice, brown sugar and cinnamon in a pan and boil for 10 minutes. Season with salt and pepper. Remove cinnamon. Whisk in butter and pour over sweet potatoes. bake for 20 to 30 minutes or until heated through.
