Jack Daniels adds a lovely subtle flavor, but don’t worry, the alcohol burns off during cooking.
Servings: 4 servings
Prep Time: 10 min
Cook Time: 1 hour 45 min
1 long strip orange peel
1/3 cup No 7 Jack Daniels Bourbon
1/4 teaspoon freshly grated nutmeg
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 degrees 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 degrees. 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.
