Potluck Candied Sweet Potatoes

You really can't go wrong when serving candied sweet potatoes to your guests, and this is a very easy recipe to prepare.


● 1 cup of brown sugar

● 1 cup sugar

● 8 medium sweet potatoes

● 1/4 cup butter

● 2 teaspoons vanilla extract

● 1/4 teaspoon salt

● 2 tablespoons cornstarch

● 2 tablespoons cold water

● Minced fresh parsley


Combine the two sugars in a small bowl, and then use a greased 5-quart slow cooker to layer 1/3 of the sweet potatoes before sprinkling with the sugar mixture.

Repeat this for two other layers, then in a small bowl you can combine the salt, vanilla, and butter, which can then be drizzled over the potatoes.

Cover and cook them on a low heat for about two hours, or until the sweet potatoes are tender.

After this time, transfer the potatoes to a serving dish and pour the cooking juices into a small saucepan, bringing them to a boil.

In a small bowl, mix together the water and cornstarch, and then stir into a pan. Bring this mixture to a boil while constantly stirring, and allow it to cook until it gets thick.

Then you can spoon it over the sweet potatoes and serve with a sprig of parsley.
