Caramelized Sweet Potatoes

READY IN: 40mins
Recipe by WiGal

DH and I eat a lot of sweet potatoes-usually baked- so this is special treat for us and can easily be split for only the two of us. It is faster this way than baked and I always have the ingredients on hand. It originally came from Better Homes and Gardens. I have reduced the sugar after Kumquat's kind review.
