Medicinal Sweet Potatoes with Maple Syrup


Maple Candied Sweet Potatoes

• 5 medium sweet potatoes (a.k.a. yams)
• ½ cup real maple syrup
• 1 tablespoon grass fed butter
• 1 teaspoon pure sea salt
• ¼ cup apple cider

Boil the sweet potatoes in their skins until nearly cooked through. Cool slightly, peel, slice and place in a baking dish. Bring maple syrup, butter, salt and apple cider to a boil and pour over the sweet potatoes. Bake at 300 degrees, uncovered for about 1 hour, basting 2 or 3 times, until the potatoes are glazed and the syrup has thickened a bit.
