These taters are quick and easy and very yummy. The hardest part of the recipe is getting DH to peel the potatoes!

Bright and zesty orange flavour, very good! I actually made these without any nuking. Boiled the sweet potatoes, sliced them and then boiled the orange sauce ingredients together and poured on top of the slices. Topped with the marshmallows and popped in the oven. No messin' with the ingredients or the amounts. Great results, just takes a bit longer with the old fashioned way.
