Juanita’s Sweet Potatoes – Crockpot

My grandma grew up in a poor sharecroppers family in rural Georgia in the 30’s and 40’s. Her family raised their own hogs and crops, including sweet potatoes. While I don’t have her original recipe (if there ever was one) I did come close. I adapted it to use a crock pot, since for the holidays it is easier. My Grandma died of brain cancer on Thanksgiving Day last year so this holiday now has a more special meaning for me and my family.

  • 4 large sweet potatoes
  • 1 cup dark brown sugar
  • 1/2 cup chopped pecans
  • 1 t cinnamon
  • 1 cup fruit juice (I use Cider)
  • 1 t salt

Peel and slice potatoes into 1/2 inch thick slices. Mix dry ingredients and layer with potatoes in a 3-4 qt crockpot. Pour juice on top. Cook for 4-6 hours on high.

I hope that this recipe spreads cheer to everyone and reminds you of someone you love.
