Boil the potatoes in the jackets. COOL, peel & slice potatoes in a 9 X 13 dish or pan.
Mix the other 7 ingredients & bring to a boil until it thickens. ( this makes a syrup) ( You may add some spices of your choice if you like)( If you cut back on the sugars it may not make a good syrup)
Pour this over the potatoes & bake at 350* Spoon syrup over potatoes several times while baking. Since ovens varies, you just bake it & you can tell when it has candied. ( You don't want it dry, keep them juicy.)
