Orange Candied Sweet Potatoes

No recipe image available.Parboiled sweet potatoes are candied in a skillet with an orange glaze.

Recipe Ingredients:

4 large (2 pounds total) sweet potatoes
1/2 cup water
1 cup granulated sugar
1/3 cup orange marmalade
1/2 cup frozen orange juice concentrate, thawed

Cooking Directions:

  1. Scrub sweet potatoes, place in a large saucepan and cover with water. Bring to a boil and then simmer until potatoes are not quite tender when pierced with a knife in the center, about 20 to 25 minutes. Drain potatoes and cool until easy enough to handle.
  2. Using hands and/or paring knife, remove skin from potatoes. Then cut potatoes in half lengthwise and width-wise to make quarters.
  3. Arrange potatoes in single layer in large saucepan or skillet. Combine the 1/2 cup water, sugar, marmalade and orange juice concentrate. Pour mixture over potatoes. Bring to a boil, reduce heat and simmer uncovered over a very low heat for 2 hours. Using a large spoon, carefully turn potatoes occasionally to cook evenly and coat with glaze.

Makes 6 servings.
