Here's the recipe for my sweet potatoes/honeyed yams for BBS & anyone who wants it. They're practically a dessert and very easy.
6 lbs sweet potatoes
2 sticks butter
12 oz honey
1 cup brown sugar
1 cup finely chopped walnuts or pecans
1 1/2 package mini marshmallows
Peel & slice sweet potatoes like medallions. Boil until soft but firm. Drain & place into baking dish. Preheat oven to 350.
Melt butter, brown sugar, and honey sauce pan. Stir continuously until butter is melted, then continue stirring until the mixture becomes a rolling boil. You must make sure that is fully boils in order for the brown sugar to melt. When you think it's melted, drizzle some on a plate and let it cool for a second - it should be smooth like caramel. If its still grainy like sugar, cook longer.
When it's done boiling, reduce heat and stir for a couple of minutes while the bubbles go down. Next, pour over the sweet potatoes in the baking dish. Dust with a couple of shakes of salt, sprinkle with nuts (optional), and cover with marshmallows (you can sprinkle more nuts over the top).
Bake 15-20 min or until marshmallows are toasted.
If anyone else has one, post it up!
