A delicious blend of flavors make these a Southern and Soul Food classic.

2 large sweet potatoes
1/4 cup butter
1/2 cup packed brown sugar
1/4 cup orange juice
1/4 cup raisins
1/4 cup chopped pecans
1/2 teaspoon cinnamon

Boil cut-up sweet potatoes until fork  tender.

Melt the butter, cinnamon, and brown sugar together in a sauce pan over medium heat. Add orange juice and stir until smooth. Add the sweet potatoes and cook slowly, turning occasionally until the sweet potatoes are caramelized, about 20 minutes. If syrup is too thin, add a more brown sugar. Garnish with the raisins and nuts.

Makes 4 -6 servings.
