MAMMY’S CANDIED SWEET POTATOES
Boil 6 small sized sweet potatoes, peel them and lay on a shallow plate or pan. Put a teaspoon butter on each potato, sprinkle on them ½ cup of brown sugar, 2 tablespoons water in pan, cook slowly and baste as you would meat. Cinnamon, cloves, nutmeg, and lemon peel improve the flavor.
