I love sweet potatoes. One of my favorite methods of cooking them is to cut them in cubes, sprinkle with sea salt & coarse black pepper, then toss in some olive oil and broil until crisp. It’s a salty, sweet snack or perfect side dish.
I ran across this recipe in an old cookbook and thought you would enjoy it.
BROWNED SWEET POTATOES
Pare, and cut in halves. Have in a skillet some hot fryings, in which place potatoes; pour in about one-half pint of water; season with salt and pepper. Cook until tender. Remove the cover, and let brown; take out in dish; throw a spoonful of sugar into skillet, with a little flour and water; let boil up once or twice, and pour over the potatoes.
