Orange and Honey Sweet Potato

Whenever I eat this sweet potato dish with honey and orange, I am reminded of the city of Casablanca with its sweet smells and the aroma of cinnamon drifting in the air after another very warm day!!

4 – 6 large sweet potatoes
50g butter
62ml brown sugar
62ml honey
62ml orange juice
the zest of one orange
2,5ml salt
2,5ml ground cinnamon

Preheat your oven to 190℃.
Scrub the sweet potato, cut into chunks and add them to an ovenproof dish.
Add the butter, brown sugar, honey, orange juice, zest, salt and cinnamon to a small saucepan and melt together.
Pour the mixture over the sweet potato chunks and stir through so that all of the potato is covered in the sauce.
Bake in the oven for 30 – 40 minutes or until cooked and slightly charred and the sauce is syrupy.
Serve warm.
