CANDIED SWEET POTATOES
Makes 4 servings
1 serving = @1 cup
5 PointsPlus per serving
2 large sweet potatoes, @2 lbs, peeled halved lengthwise & cut crosswise into 2" thick pieces
1/4 cup orange juice
2 TBSP packed light brown sugar
2 TBSP maple syrup
1 TBSP reduced-calorie margarine, melted
1/2 tsp table salt
Preheat oven to 375 degrees.
Place sweet potatoes in a large saucepan & pour in enough water to cover potatoes. Set pan over high heat and bring to a boil; reduce heat to medium and simmer 10 minutes until potatoes are fork tender. Drain potatoes and arrange them in a single layer in bottom of a shallow baking dish.
Whisk together juice, sugar, syrup, margarine and salt. Pour mixture over sweet potatoes.
Bake for 30 minutes, then stir to coat potatoes with liquid and bake for 15 minutes more until sauce is thick and bubbly. Stir once again before serving.
Okay....I made them this way and figured out it was alot more work than it needed to be. So here's MY SPIN on it and it comes out to about the same points value:
2 large or 4 small to medium sweet potatoes, peeled and sliced (NOT lengthwise) @1/2" thick
2 TBSP I Can't Believe It's Not Butter1
/4 cup Splenda Brown Sugar Blend
2 TBSP sugar-free maple (pancake) syrup
Put all the ingredients in a large saucepan over medium heat and cook until the potatoes are tender.....I do them until they're kind of falling apart....stirring frequently. Takes maybe 30 minutes or so. YUM!!!!!
