 Ingredients List

  • 6 lg Sweet potato
  • 2 tb Margarine
  • 3/4 c Dark brown sugar
  • 1/2 c Water
  • 1 pn Salt
  • 1 pn Ground ginger


Place potatoes in a large pan; cover with cold water. Bring to a boil; cook

chunks; refrigerate. (If desired, this can be done the day before.)

In a large nonstick skillet, melt margarine. Add brown sugar, water, salt,
and ginger. Bring to a simmer; add half of potato slices in one layer. Cook
at a slow boil over medium heat until potatoes are brown and crisp around
edges. Turn; brown other side. With a slotted spoon, transfer potatoes to a
platter; reserve in a warm place near the stove. Add remaining potatoes to
skillet; cook as the first batch. Serve immediately.
