This recipe from Ms. Susie (Farmer Danny's wife and Farmer Kim's mother) really brings out the sweetness of sweet potatoes. As its name suggests, it's almost as sweet as candy!


  • 1
    Pre-heat the oven to 175°C.
  • 2
    Peel the sweet potatoes and cut them into rounded slices about 2 cm thick. Spread the slices evenly over the bottom of a large baking dish.
  • 3
    Cut the butter into cubes and distribute over the sweet potato slices. Add the water, then sprinkle the sugar over the top. Cover the baking dish with aluminium foil, piercing a few holes in the foil to allow the steam to escape.
  • 4
    Bake for 45 minutes, then check to see if the sweet potatoes have reached the desired degree of softness. If not, bake for another 15 minutes or so.
