Candied Sweet Potatoes

These are rich and tender with a chewy caramelized crust. Their luscious sweetness is offset by just a hint of spiciness for the cayenne. This recipe is my very favorite Thanksgiving side dish. More good news, sweet potatoes are also a great source of soluble fiber. Just like stuffing, this dish is actually very helpful for your digestion!

Makes 6 Servings

2 tablespoons canola oil
3 large sweet potatoes, peeled and cut into 1/4 inch slices
1 cup water
1/2 cup packed brown sugar
dash salt
dash cayenne, or to taste

Heat the oil in a well-seasoned large cast iron skillet over medium low heat. Add the sweet potatoes. Stir together the water, sugar, salt, and cayenne, and pour over potatoes. Cover and cook for about 20 minutes without stirring. Turn the potatoes over, cover, and cook for about 15 minutes more, turning occasionally to coat each piece with syrup and taking care that the potatoes caramelize evenly. Continue to cook and turn potatoes in this manner until they are fork-tender. Transfer to serving platter immediately.
