Source: "Fanny Farmer Cookbook"
Serves: 4

4 medium sweet potatoes or yams
4 tbsp. butter or margarine
1/3 cup brown sugar

Boil potatoes until tender, then drain. Peel and cut in half lengthwise.

Put butter and sugar in a heavy skillet and heat, stirring occasionally, until melted. Add the potatoes and turn until lightly browned. Add 1/4 cup water, cover, and simmer over low heat for about 10-15 minutes.

Variations: After the butter and sugar have melted, put the potatoes in a buttered baking dish, pour the butter-sugar mixture on top, cover and bake in a preheated oven at 350°F oven for 45 minutes to 1 hour.
