  • Traditional Sweet Potato Pone ( a Soul Food recipe-a bit like the filling for Sweet Potato Pie)

    8 Servings

    2 eggs
    1/2 cup brown sugar
    1/4 cup molasses
    1/4 cup butter, melted
    1/2 teaspoon salt
    1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
    1/2 teaspoon freshly grated nutmeg
    1/2 cup milk
    Zest of 1 orange
    1 medium, sweet potato, about 12 ounces

    Mix the eggs, brown sugar, molasses, butter, salt, cinnamon, and nutmeg until smooth; add the milk, orange zest, and grated sweet potatoes.

    Butter a shallow 1 1/2 - 2 quart baking dish; pour in the mixture, smoothing out the surface.

    Bake in a preheated 350° oven for 1 hour, until set and brown. Serve hot as a dinner accompaniment or room temperature in slices.

  • I dice them up and add them to soups. I also "fry" them in my cast iron skillet - chunk them, throw them in the pan with a little water and a little butter, cover with foil, give a shake every once in a while (or stir them), and when they're done add a little sugar to the pan to lightly candy them. Especially good cooked over a fire. Baked is another way.

  • Cut them into thick slices and toss them in a bowl with olive oil, cinnamon, cayenne salt and pepper. Lay them in a pan and bake them at 350 until soft...flip them once or twice. So yummy!
