  • Appetizer
  • 2-3 large sweet potatoes, peeled and sliced 1/2 inch slices
  • water
  • 2 tablespoons brown sugar
  • 1/2 inch fresh ginger root, peeled and cut in cubes about the size of corn kernels
  • (I have also used the sweet potatoes mixed with parsnips for a different 'flavor'
How to make it:
  1. Arrange the slices in layers in the bottom of a 1 & 1/2 quart casserole.
  2. Alternate layers with sprinkles of the brown sugar and 1 or 2 chunks of ginger per layer.
  3. Pour about 1/2 cup of water over the whole.
  4. Bake, covered, approximately 1 hour in an oven preheated to 350 degrees.
  5. You can 'overfill' the casserole dish because the ingredients cook down and will not overflow.
