Aunt Ruth's Sweet Potatoes


  • 4 pounds sweet potatoes, peeled
  • 1 cup dark brown sugar
  • 1/4 cup butter
  • 1/4 cup water
  • pinch salt

Preheat over to 350.

Cut Potatoes into 1" thick rounds, then cut in 1/2.

In a separate pot, combine sugar, butter, water, and salt.  Simmer until dissolved and reduced slightly, 10-15 minutes on low.

Place sweet potatoes in a single layer in large glass baking dish.  Pour sugar mixture over sweet potatoes and bake, basting and turning occasionally, until potatoes are soft and have a caramelized coating.
