Maple - Baked Sweet Potatoes

Maple - Baked Sweet Potatoes

Unfortunately for me, I love sweet potatoes but was running out of ways to serve them! (besides with butter, brown sugar, and hosted marshmallows on top, right??) So I came up with a new recipe that was a hit with the whole family! Enjoy!

Side Dish Serving Size: 6-10
Prep Time: 5 minutes
Cook Time: 12 minutes

2 Large Orange Sweet Potatoes
1/2 Cup Water
1 Tbsp Raw Honey (or your preferred sweetener)
1 Tbsp Maple Sugar
2 drops Mapleine 
1 Tsp Salt

Slice the Sweet Potatoes keeping the skin on. (The skin is good for you! teach the kids to eat it young!)
put them in a medium sauce pan, add the water, honey, mapleine, and salt. Stir so the salt mixes in over all the potatoes. 
Cook on Medium until a boil begins, then turn to low and let them steam in the pot. Set a timer, they should be steamed thoroughly in 10 minutes. Check, they made need a bit longer. (I have a gas stove which only takes ten minutes) Pour into a bowl and serve!
