Candied Sweet Potatoes


  • 12 medium yams or sweet potatoes (or about 3 - 16 oz. cans, drained)
  • 1/2 cup butter or margarine (melted)
  • 1 cup Dark Karo Corn Syrup or molasses
  • 4 tbsp. water
  • 1/2 cup dark brown sugar

If using fresh potatoes, boil potatoes long enough to remove skin. Slice potatoes and place in baking pan(s), only one layer deep (disposable pans make for easy clean-up).  Crowding is okay.

If using canned sweet potatoes, drain the can before placing in the baking pan.

Combine the remaining items and pour over potatoes.

Bake at 375 degrees for about 1 hour.

Check after 30 minutes, turning to glaze or spooning sauce over the top. The longer it bakes, the more caramelized the potatoes become.
