    Lori Ann D's Note:

    My mother-in-law and I just came up with this recipe while making Thanksgiving dinner yesterday. The beauty is that you can choose the cooking method that works best for you... stove top, oven, or crock pot--and they are nearly impossible to mess up. Fix and forget! We both agreed these are the best sweet potatoes we've ever had!

    Units: US | Metric


    1. 1
      Peel and slice sweet potatoes (or drain cans).
    2. 2
      STOVE TOP INSTRUCTIONS: Melt butter in large pan over medium heat.
    3. 3
      Add sweet potatoes, apple cider/juice, brown sugar,cranberries (if using) and a shake or two of salt and pepper.
    4. 4
      Cook, stirring occasionally, until hot. Reduce heat and continue cooking and stirring occasionally, until potatoes are tender (approximately 45 minutes, but time will depend on thickness of potato slices). These can remain on the stovetop on Low heat until ready to serve.
    5. 5
      Stir in the orange marmalade towards the end of cooking.
    6. 6
      Add pecans just before serving.
    7. 7
      OVEN INSTRUCTIONS: Place sweet potatoes in a 9x13 greased baking dish. Sprinkle with all ingredients. Cover and bake at 350 degrees for one hour or until potatoes are tender.
    8. 8
      CROCK POT INSTRUCTIONS: Place all ingredients in greased crock pot. Cook on High setting for 30 minutes. Turn heat to Low, stir occasionally and cook until tender (I haven't made these in the crock pot yet, so I don't know how long they will take -- maybe 6-8 hours if using fresh sweet potatoes).

      I can't EVEN BELIEVE that there is only one review for these. I confess that I made these last year, and this year for Thanksgiving, and guess what I'm making it for Christmas too!! This recipe is the BEST!!! Everyone just loved it. I did add my own touches to the recipe to make it my own. But thanks a bunch for sharing it with us!!!!!

      Nothing was optional here ~ I used it all, though I did cut the recipe in half! I also didn't peel the yams & I did toast the pecans & made it all on the stovetop! Gotta say ~ This is ONE OF THE VERY BEST TASTING YAM DISHES I'VE EVER HAD, & since I love yams, I've made a lot of them over the years! Thank you for A GREAT KEEPER!
