Glazed Sweet Potatoes


4 large sweet potatoes
1 cup brown sugar
Pinch of salt
½ cup butter
¼ cup hot water
Chopped pecans, if desired



Boil potatoes until partially done, peel, and cut in quarters lengthwise. Place in a buttered baking dish.

Make a syrup of the sugar, butter, water, and salt. Pour over the potatoes.

Bake at 350 degrees until the potatoes are brown, basting often with the syrup. If necessary add a small amount of boiling water. When ready to serve, sprinkle with chopped pecans.
