    Candied Orange Sweet Potatoes

    Ree Drummond – The Pioneer Woman

    Recipe Introduction

    These were a real revelation. I had never thought about making sweet potatoes in the slow cooker until I saw her make these on TV. I read the notes on the recipe and made an adjustment to the timing. The original recipe calls for 3 hours, but others recommended 4. Since you stir twice during the cooking, I was able to check the doneness and 4 hours was what worked for me. Also, she calls for fairly large chunks and I cut into about 1 1/2 -inch pieces. They turned out tender and sweet and delicious. Jessica had wanted the sweet potatoes with the streusel/pecan topping, so I made a batch of my Cinnamon Pecans to sprinkle on top. She also called for cayenne, which I omitted because I can’t even imagine why you would do that. I think she feels bound by her “brand” to put either cayenne or chipotle peppers in everything she cooks .
