3-4 large sweet potatoes
2 cups of white sugar
1 stick of butter (not margarine)
2 teaspoons vanilla
2 teaspoons bourbon (optional)
dash of nutmeg and cinnamon
Peel and slice potatoes.
Use a clean dish towel to pat dry.
(This is IMPORTANT!). Put the potatoes in a pot and pour remaining ingredients over potatoes.
Cover with a tight fitting lid (or aluminum foil).
Cook on a very low flame 45 minutes to an hour until the potatoes are tender and syrup forms.
