Peel and cut into chunks. Pan steam them with water and butter. Cover and as the water evaporates, they will saute in the butter and become soft. Add light brown sugar, some dark rum and S&P to taste.

sweet potatoes are, as you said, delicious, and are one of the true super-foods. They are full of health promoting minerals, vitamins, phyto-nutrients, and fiber. The have anti-cancer properties, anti-inflamatory properties, and contain nutrients that help relieve stress, and give the gut critters the food they need to thrive, and help digest the food we eat. There are three basic colors of sweet potatoes (not to be confused with the starchier, and less nutritious yam), orange, which has the highest amount of vitamin A, purple, which is more rich in anthocyanins (like blueberries and grapes), and white, which is the least nutritious of the three, though it's still way better than a white potato. If you prepare it simply, by steaming, roasting, or microwaving, and season with good things, eschewing some of the butter and added sweeteners, it is an amazingly nutritious and yummy food.

Most people don't realize it, but the skin is edible. Also, great sweet potatoes into a slaw or salad for added texture and flavor.

Foods that sweet potato really compliment:
1.pork
2. Poultry, especially chicken and turkey
3. corned beef
4. ham
5. any kind of smoked sausage
6. cruciferous veggies (broccoli, cauliflower, etc.)
7. summer squash varieties
8. fish
9. braised or well done roasted beef
10. beef stew

Another simple preperation is to cut them into chunks, dress with a little light oil, salt, and pepper, and roast them,

Oh, and don't forget roasting them on the grill, alongside some sizzling meat so as to pick up that great, smokey flavor.

Can you tell that I really like sweet potatoes? Not crazy about yams, though many sweet potatoes in the U.S. are mistakenly called yams. Look up the difference.
