4-5 medium sweet potatoes, washed
1/2 cup butter
1 cup sugar
1/2 cup water
1/4 cup shredded coconut (optional)
Boil the sweet potatoes in their skins until tender, about 25 minutes. Let cool and then cut into slices about 1-1/2 inches thick. In a large frying pan or skillet, melt butter. Stir in brown sugar and water and cook on medium heat for about 5 minutes. Lower heat and add sweet potatoes. Gently toss the sweet potatoes until they are glazed. Put into a serving dish and top with coconut before serving. ONO!!!
