2 1/2 sweet potatoes
3 tablespoons butter
1/4 cup maple syrup
2 tablespoons brown sugar
2 tablespoons flaked coconut (optional)
1/3 cup chopped pecans
Procedures : Place sweet potatoes in a large saucepan with water to cover them. Bring the water to a boil, reduce heat, cover and let simmer 25 to 30 minutes until tender.
Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Use non-aerosol non stick spray to grease a 8×8 inch baking pan.
When the sweet potatoes are cool, peel and cut them into large chunks. Arrange them in the prepared dish.
In a small saucepan, melt butter, syrup, sugar and coconut together over a low heat. Cook for 3 to 5 minutes, stirring constantly. Sprinkle mixture over sweet potatoes. Top mixture with pecans.
