Candied Sweet Potatoes

These are the sweet potatoes my mother used to make on holidays when my brother and I were little kids, before she became diabetic. They are sweet, succulent, delicious and as it turns out not that good for you but hey? If you're healthy enough to enjoy treats, once a year can't hurt, right?

When cooled, peel and cut into chunks.

In small saucepan combine remaining ingredients, cook and stir until mixture boils.


Pour over potatoes.
