Active Time: 10 minutes
Total Time: 1 hour 10 minutes

Ingredients

  • 2 kgs / 3,5 pounds sweet potatoes, peeled and cut into 1 1/2-inch pieces (about 10 cups)
  • 1 can pure maple syrup
  • 4 tablespoons butter, melted
  • 1/4 cup brown sugar
  • 2 tablespoon lemon juice
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • Freshly ground pepper, to taste
  • Flaked coconut

    4. Add sweet potatoes; toss to coat evenly.
    5. Add maple syrup; toss potatoes to coat, and bring to a boil.
