HELEN’S BRANDIED SWEET POTATOES
Just in time for the holidays, my mother’s legendary and yummy sweet potoates. They always found a place on both our Thanksgiving and Christmas tables. I’ve never been a fan of sweet potatoes, but I love these. Must be the brandy.
2 1/2 pounds sweet potatoes
1/4 pound butter
1/2 cup light brown sugar
1 teaspoon cinnamon
1/4 teaspoon nutmeg
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/2 cup brandy
Boil potatoes in skins until soft. Remove from water and cool. Peel and slice crosswise into 1 1/2-inch thick slices. Place in well greased shallow pan, and dot with the butter.
Mix brown sugar, cinnamon, nutmeg and salt. Sprinkle over potatoes. Pour brandy on top. Bake in 375 degree Fahrenheit oven for 30 minutes.
