Sweet potatoes, soul-style

Yield: 6 Servings

Measure Ingredient
6 \N Dark sweet potatoes; medium size; peeled & cut into 1/4-inch slices
½ \N Water
5 cups White sugar
1 \N Stick butter


These are the most delicious sweet potatoes you can imagine. With all of this butter and sugar they should be! Ms. Helen Vallard, "Louise-anna born and raised," cooks at a very good soul-food restaurant in Seattle called Southern Comfort. This is her recipe, and when she gave it to me I really thought there was some mistake in terms of the amount of sugar. This will work well, and it is very simple. The dish makes its own syrup and it will be a hit with your family year-round.

Rinse the potato slices in ample water and drain. Place in a 2-quart covered saucepan and add the water, sugar, and butter. Cover and simmer until very tender, about 30 minutes. Do not stir during the cooking process.
