Took me 20 years to convert them but now everyone loves the sweet potatoes I make for Turkey day.

For one large can of sweet potatoes I melt 1/4 cup butter, about 1/2 cup brown sugar (we like the dark best) and about 3 Tbsp frozen orange juice. I combine all in an electric fry pan and cook on low to medium heat untill the sauce gets thick.

Guaranteed fights over the left-overs (though even for our small family and two large cans the left-overs are sparse!),

Good Luck!

here's what I ended up doing:

dumped 1 can of sweet potatoes in a round large ramekin-like casserole dish. Added a couple of tablespoons of brown sugar, dots of butter, one diced granny smith apple, mixed it up, and covered the whole mess w/chopped toasted pecans. Baked for about 30 minutes at 350.

HH loved it.

Save them for dessert. I made a Sweet Potato Cake last week that was fabulous. Although it called for canned SP, I used some that I had baked.
