Our Favorite Recipes


4 to 5 medium sized sweet potatoes or yams, cut into ¼ inch round coins
1 stick salted butter, divided into TBSP’s
½ cup Bourbon
½ cup maple syrup
1 ½ cups light brown sugar

We like Jim Beam bourbon!

1. Peel, wash, and cut sweet potatoes into ⅛ to ¼ inch coins.

Pro Tip: Save the peels and toss them in your garden. They will break down over the winter adding nutrients to your soil!

2. Layer bottom of a 9” x 13” baking dish with sweet potatoes; put 6 TBSP’s butter evenly spaced on top of potatoes; spread ½ cup of the brown sugar evenly across the potatoes

3. Repeat this process 3 times.

4. Pour the maple syrup & bourbon over the potatoes evenly.

5. Cover and bake for 45 minutes; remove foil and bake for an additional 15 to 20 minutes or until fork tender.
