Old Fashioned Candied Sweet Potatoes With Orange Juice

An old-fashioned sweet potato side dish known as Southern candied yams is prepared by slow cooking the sweet potatoes in a mixture of candied ingredients on the stovetop. Brown and white sugar, butter, warm cinnamon, nutmeg, vanilla essence, and orange juice concentrate are all components of the recipe. These ingredients are also included.

With a flavor that is reminiscent of buttery caramel toffee, these yams are extremely soft, sweet, and lemony. This dish is amazing for Thanksgiving or any other time of the year! Be sure to check out the reviews on Pinterest!



  • 6 medium sweet potatoes
  • 1 cup packed brown sugar
  • ½ cup unsalted butter
  • ¼ cup orange juice
  • ½ teaspoon salt
  • 4 whole cloves, or more to taste


  1. After placing the sweet potatoes in a large saucepan, they should be covered with salted water and brought to a boil. After that, the sweet potatoes should be cooked. While the vegetables are cooking, reduce the heat to medium-low and let them simmer for 18 to 20 minutes, or until they are tender but not mushy. Get out of here! After being peeled, sweet potatoes should be cut in half lengthwise and then peeled again. Throw away the skins.

  2. After bringing the brown sugar, butter, orange juice, salt, and cloves to a boil in a large skillet or electric frying pan, the mixture should be removed from the heat until it has reached the desired temperature. When the syrup has been simmering at a low heat for five minutes, it should be ready to be served. Allow the potato halves to simmer in the syrup for twenty to twenty-five minutes after placing them in the syrup itself. Before serving, you have the option of removing the cloves from the syrup according to your preferences.
