Preparing: 30 min. + Baking: 30 min.
- sweet potatoes (or butternut squash): 2 pounds
- butter (cubed): 1/4 cup
- Viking Farms Maple Syrup: 1/4 cup
- brown sugar: 1/4 cup
- cinnamon (grounded): 1/4 teaspoon
Put fresh sweet potatoes in a large saucepan, add enough water to deepen them completely. Cover, bring to a boil, reduce heat, continue simmering 25-40 minutes until potatoes are tender, and can be easily pierced with a fork. The next steps are to drain, cool, peel and chunk boiled vegetables.
Turn on the oven and preheat it to 350°.
While waiting for the oven to heat, combine butter, maple syrup, sugar and cinnamon in a small saucepan, bring to a boil, stirring constantly.
Place prepared sweet potatoes in a 2-qt. baking dish. Pour hot maple mixture over potatoes.
Put the dish in the oven and bake, uncovered, 30-40 minutes.
