Orange-Glazed Sweet Potatoes


6 sweet potatoes or 1 can (15 ounces) vacuum-packed sweet potatoes
(no syrup)
3 tablespoons butter
1 tablespoon cornstarch
1 cup orange juice
1/3 cup white sugar
1/3 cup light brown sugar
pinch of salt


If you are using fresh sweet potatoes, cook in boiling salted water for 30 minutes. Peel. Slice the canned or freshly cooked potatoes in half lengthwise. Place in a casserole dish and set aside.

Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F.

In a small saucepan, melt the butter. Add the cornstarch and stir until dissolved and smooth. Add the orange juice, stirring constantly. Then add the sugars and salt. Cook over medium heat, stirring constantly, until the sauce is thickened.

Pour the sauce over the sweet potatoes. Bake for 30 minutes.

Serve hot.
