This is a wonderful recipe that goes back years, the addition of orange juice seems to bring out the flavour --- to save time you can even cook the potatoes a day ahead, and this may easily be doubled or even tripled to serve a large dinner party --- this is so delicious! :)
- 4 small sweet potatoes, peeled, and cut into 1/2 inch cubes
- 1⁄4 cup brown sugar
- 1⁄2 teaspoon cinnamon
- 1⁄2 teaspoon salt
- 1⁄2 cup unsweetened orange juice
- 4 tablespoons butter, cubed into small pieces
- 1 cup mini marshmallows (can use a bit more if desired)
- Set oven to 425°F.

- In a saucepan cook sweet potatoes in boiling water for about 8-10 minutes, or until just firm-tender; drain well and transfer to baking dish.

Another favorite Kitten recipe that is yum yum. I doubled this recipe for Christmas day to feed 5 and I had only about 1/4 of the recipe left. Fantastic Carol!!!
I used your recipe for Thanksgivng. I mashed the sweet potatoes with the spices so my granddaugthers would eat them but I forgot to add the orange juice. Everyone said how much they liked them and I didn't have leftovers. Next time I will have to remember the orange juice. Thanks Kittencal. Bullwinkle
Doubled the recipe and made for Christmas dinner. So delicious. It disappeared, and my family loved it so much I made it again the next night to eat with leftovers!
