Caramelized Sweet Potato

These rich and crunchy sweet potatoes will soon become one of the family's favorite side dishes. Recipe serves 4-6.


1 1/2 pound (750 g) white sweet potato
1 ounce (30 g) butter
3 ounces (90 g) brown sugar
1 teaspoon grated orange zest


1. Peel potatoes and boil in water until almost cooked. Drain and cut into quarters.
2. Melt butter in a large fry pan. Add sweet potatoes and sprinkle with the sugar and orange zest. Coat the potatoes and cook for about 7 minutes. In this time the sugar should dissolve and melt and form a crunchy coating over the potatoes.
3. Transfer to a serving dish and serve.
