Getting the freshest produce always yields the best results so be sure to visit South Carolina's Certified Grown website to find where to buy the freshest in season produce near you.

Did you know?
The leaves and shoots of the Sweet Potato plant are also eaten as greens?

Makes 10 servings


2 cups water
1 cup white granulated sugar
1 cup packed light brown sugar
1/4 cup unsalted butter
½ teaspoon nutmeg ground
¼ teaspoon Allspice
¼ teaspoon Vanilla extract
1 slice of lemon
10 sweet potatoes raw or if you like, yams


In a skillet, add water and stir in both white and brown sugars and bring to a boil, ( this creates a simple syrup), add in butter, nutmeg, allspice and one lemon slice. Once simmering/boiling, add in your raw sliced sweet potatoes, making them around ¾ of an inch thick and return to a boil. Reduce heat, cover and simmer until sweet potatoes are tender and cooked through, about 40 minutes.
