Sweet Potatoes with Orange Juice


Whoops! I forgot to take a picture when they were done

4 pound sweet potatoes – peeled and cubed
2 cups orange juice
1/2 cup honey
2 t  grated fresh ginger
1/2 t cinnamon
1/2 t ground cardamom
1 t kosher salt

Simmer the sweet potatoes in boiling water  for five minutes – drain
Combine the remaining ingredients in a bowl
Add the sweet potatoes and stir to coat
Pour everything into a buttered/oiled baking dish and bake uncovered for about 1 hour at 350 degrees

(I’ve had some trouble with the timing on this dish so I will update it again soon) This year I tried pre-boiling the sweet potatoes for 12 minutes rather than 5 minutes.  Hopefully this will take care of the “great sweet potato wait” of 2009.
