When I was a kid, I hated sweet potatoes. They were too sweet and the melted marshmallows grossed me out. As an adult, I enjoy my sweet potatoes with butter and a dash of salt and pepper. As a standard staple plan sweet potatoes became boring at special events.
A couple of years ago, I decided to try a new recipe for candied sweet potatoes. This recipe is great. It is easy to make and it gives the sweet potatoes a refreshing twist with a tart sweetness that will add to any special event. The vanilla and orange juice cut through the heaviness of the brown sugar for a perfect blend of yummy. Don't substitute vanilla extract for the actual vanilla beans, the vanilla bean provides a stronger flavor needed to balance out the orange juice. Don't be concerned about the bourbon over powering the dish, most of it evaporates and just leaves a hint of a nutty after taste.
