Bourbon (or Brandied) Sweet Potatoes-adapted from recipelion.com
6 medium sized sweet potatoes
1/2 C brown sugar
1/2 C water-I'd reduce this by a couple tablespoons
60 g (approx 4 1/2 Tblsp) butter
1/4 C raisins
1/2 C bourbon or brandy
- Wash sweet potatoes, do not peel, cook in boiling water until barely soft (about 15 minutes). I peeled and washed them, cut each potato in half long ways and then into 1/2" chunks. Then placed a steamer over boiling water for 8 minutes).
- Drain, cool and peel. Slice into a greased casserole dish.
- Bring sugar, water, butter and raisins to a boil. Remove from heat, add bourbon or brandy and pour over sweet potatoes.
- Bake uncovered at 350 degrees for 30 minutes, basting several times with liquid.
