Louisiana Candied Sweet Potatoes
PREP TIME: 20 Minutes

The use of canned sweet potatoes in this recipe ensures ease of preparation. Often when making candied yams, the cook will blend butter and brown sugar to create a simple glaze for the baked yams. Steen’s Cane Syrup has modified that traditional technique by substituting their wonderful cane syrup which infuses a more interesting flavor into the sweet potatoes. Try them..you’ll love them.


  • 1/4 cup butter or margarine
  • 1/2 cup Steen’s Syrup
  • 1 (1-pound) can sweet potatoes

Melt butter in skillet or pot; stir in syrup. Pour the can of potatoes in skillet or pot; turn to coat with syrup mixture. Cook over medium heat until glazed, about 15 minutes, turning and basting occasionally.
