The Sweetest Sweet Potatoes

There is something to be said about no fuss, simple cooking! It’s just makes you think of home! The Sweetest Sweet Potatoes: Another tasty recipe from the SugarBaby Brown Sugar Saver Kitchen.
What You Need
3 to 6 medium sweet potatoes (adjust depending on size of potato)
1/4 cup brown sugar, not packed (either golden or dark)
1/4 cup butter
Salt and pepper to taste
Pinch of cinnamon
What You Do
  1. Wash the sweet potatoes and cut into smaller chucks or pieces – the smaller the pieces, the shorter the cooking time.
  2. Put into a suitably sized saucepan, cover with cold water and bring to a boil. Cook until the potatoes soften, or a fork easily pierces the potato flesh (approximately 20 to 30 minutes, depending on size and number of potatoes).
  3. Drain and rinse with cool water so that the skins can be peeled away. Usually this can be done with hands only, but if preferred, use a knife or peeler.
  4. Cut skinless potatoes into bite sized pieces.
  5. Melt butter in a large frying pan and add potatoes along with the brown sugar.
  6. Cook until butter, brown sugar and potatoes are combined and well heated.
  7. Sprinkle with salt and pepper to taste, and a pinch of cinnamon on top.
