Bourbon-Glazed Sweet Potatoes

Bourbon-Glazed Sweet Potatoes

Hi everybody :)

Today I like to share with you my favorite sweet potato recipe; Bourbon Glazed Sweet Potatoes. This is a basic simple recipe that can easily be prepared. The potatoes are first steamed until just about tender, than they're transferred to the oven to be roasted while basting in the bourbon glaze. 

Bourbon-Glazed Sweet Potatoes

7-8 medium sweet potatoes. peeled & cut into pieces

water, enough to cover potatoes
1/4 cup sugar
1/3 cup brown sugar
1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
1/4 teaspoon freshly ground nutmeg
1/4 cup butter
2 tablespoons cornstarch + 2 tablespoons water
1 teaspoon vanilla
2 - 4 tablespoons bourbon

In a large pot with lid, steamed potatoes in water over medium heat until almost done, about 20-25 minutes. Drained, reserving about 1/2 cup of the liquid. Place potatoes in a baking dish, set aside. preheat oven to 350.
To the reserved liquid, add the sugars, spices, and butter and return pot to medium heat. Add cornstarch mixture. Cook until mixture reduced and thicken, about 10 minutes; stirring occasionally. 
Remove from heat, add the vanilla and bourbon. Pour over potatoes. Place in oven and baste every 5- 10 minutes for about 25 minutes. Served warm.

ENJOY! Come again...
