November: Sweet Potatoes
Side Dishes
Tallapoosa River EC
5 or 6 medium sweet potatoes
1 ¾ cups Dr. Pepper
1 ¼ cup sugar
¾ stick butter
¾ teaspoon salt
Parboil sweet potatoes for 10 minutes. (Cook’s note: I like to bake them for better flavor.) Slice sweet potatoes and place in baking dish. Combine all remaining ingredients in a saucepan and boil for 10 minutes to create a syrup. Pour syrup mixture over sweet potatoes and bake at 375 degrees for about 45 minutes, basting sweet potatoes several times. Juice will not be very thick.
