Orange-Glazed Sweet Potatoes
- 2-3 medium-size sweet potatoes (about 2-3 lbs.)
- 1/8 cup firmly packed dark brown sugar
- 1/2 cup fresh orange juice
- 1/4 tsp. orange zest
- 1/8 tsp. kosher salt
- 1/8 tsp. ground cinnamon
- 1 Tbsp. butter, melted
Preheat oven to 325°. Peel potatoes, and cut into 1-inch-thick slices; arrange in a single layer in 2 lightly greased 13- x 9-inch baking dishes.
Stir together brown sugar and next 5 ingredients; pour over potatoes. Cover with aluminum foil.
Bake at 325° for 45 minutes or until fork-tender. Uncover and bake 5 more minutes or until glaze becomes syrupy.
