 Ingredients List

  • 6 Dark sweet potatoes; medium
  • -size; peeled & cut into
  • -1/4-inch slices
  • 1/2 Water
  • 5 c White sugar
  • 1 Stick butter



These are the most delicious sweet potatoes you can imagine. With all of
this butter and sugar they should be! Ms. Helen Vallard, "Louise-anna born
and raised," cooks at a very good soul-food restaurant in Seattle called
Southern Comfort. This is her recipe, and when she gave it to me I really
thought there was some mistake in terms of the amount of sugar. This will
work well, and it is very simple. The dish makes its own syrup and it will
be a hit with your family year-round.

Rinse the potato slices in ample water and drain. Place in a 2-quart
covered saucepan and add the water, sugar, and butter. Cover and simmer
until very tender, about 30 minutes. Do not stir during the cooking
