Every year for Thanksgiving we make my Aunt Donna's Sweet Potato recipe. This is the one thing I can eat and not get sick of. It's the first on my plate and the first to be eaten.
5 good size sweet potatoes or yams (cleaned, peeled and cut into 1 - 2 inch rounds)
1 cup of brown sugar
1/2 cup of water
2 tbls of butter
Arrange the potatoes/yams in a skillet - cover with brown sugar and butter. Pour water over everything. Cover and simmer until soft (not mushy). This is usually about 30 - 45 minutes. I always double the sauce because it is so yummy!!!
