Recipe: Candied Sweet Potatoes with Honey

Place in an iron frying pan

  • Three-quarters cup of honey,
  • Two tablespoons of shortening,
  • One-quarter teaspoon of mace,
  • One-quarter teaspoon of cinnamon.

Bring to a boil and cook until it becomes thick, then add six boiled sweet potatoes. Turn them frequently in syrup, adding four tablespoons of water to prevent burning. Cook slowly for twenty minutes.

NOTE.—Have the potatoes boiled and then peeled, and ready waiting before putting the honey in the pan.
