  • 1 long strip orange peel
  • 1/3 cup bourbon
  • 1/4 teaspoon nutmeg, freshly grated
  • 1 3 to 4 inch cinnamon stick
  • 4 tablespoons butter
  • 1 cup brown sugar
  • 3 cups water
  • 4 large sweet potatoes


Wash and dry sweet potatoes and bake at 400° for one hour, until potatoes are soft to the touch. Remove from the oven and let cool slightly then remove skin from potatoes.


Reduce oven temperature to 350°. While the potatoes are baking, combine remaining ingredients in a saucepan. Bring to a boil, then reduce the heat and simmer for 30 to 45 minutes until sauce is slightly thickened.


Slice the potatoes 1/2-inch thick into a medium casserole dish. Pour syrup over them and return to the oven and bake for approximately 30 minutes.


Tip: To make this dish faster, bake potatoes the night before, leave skin on and throw in the refrigerator until ready to use.
