Marsha's notes for this recipe:
Candied Sweet Potatoes always made an appearance at Thanksgiving and usually for Chritmas at our house growing up. A easy side dish that may be made a couple of days a head and reheated for the "Big Event".

Scrub sweet potatoes, but do not peel. Place potatoes in 3-quart saucepan. Add enough water just to cover. Heat to boiling; reduce heat to low. Cover and simmer 20 to 25 minutes or until tender. Drain; cool slightly. Slip off skins. Cut into 1/2-inch slices.
Heat remaining ingredients, except pecans, in 10-inch skillet over medium heat, stirring constantly, until smooth and bubbly. Add potatoes. Gently stir until glazed and hot. Add pecans and serve.
