Why I Love This Recipe
We love sweet potatoes, whether mashed, fried, baked, or what have you. But by basting these in butter and maple syrup, they take on a sweetness that is simply wonderful to experience.
Ingredients You'll Need
5 Medium to large Sweet Potatoes
1/4 cup pure Maple Syrup
1 stick ( Half cup) butter
Peel the sweet potatoes and place them in boiling water. Boil them until they're fairly tender,
take them out and let them cool
Once cooled, use a knife to cut them into 1/2 inch wide slices
In a large frying pan, melt the stick of butter, and then stir in the 1/4 cup of pure maple syrup
Turn the heat to low, and then lay the Sweet potato slices into the butter/syrup mix.
Using a turkey baster, continue to baste the sweet potatoes every 5 - 10 minutes with the butter/syrup mix
You can do this for hours, but they're really wonderful after about 45 minutes to an hour
