An old recipe from my long gone mother-in-law that she made every Thanksgiving that melts in your mouth. I still make it & I'm so glad I got the recipe from her.

How to Make Glazed Sweet Potatoes


  • 1Boil potatoes and yams until done but not over-cooked. They need to be firm, not mushy. Let them cool until able to peel off skins easily. Slice the potatoes length-wise and lay them in a 9x13 baking dish in a single layer.
  • 2Make a syrup with the rest of the ingredients by boiling for just a few minutes and pour over the sweet potatoes. Put in 400 degree oven and baste every few minutes.
  • 3This needs to cook slowly until bubbly before serving. Length of time depends on how hot the potatoes are & how many.
    But this is worth the time it takes to bake!
