Orange Glazed Sweet Potatoes

Orange Glazed Sweet Potatoes

6 NC sweet potatoes, peeled and cut into large cubes
1/4 cup brown sugar
2 tablespoons butter
2 tablespoons orange juice
2 teaspoons orange zest
1 cup apricot preserves
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon pepper
1/2 cup chopped walnuts


Place the sweet potatoes in a 2-quart casserole, cover, and cook in microwave on high for 10 to 12 minutes until the potatoes are tender. Remove and set aside to cool slightly.

Combine the butter, brown sugar, orange juice, orange zest, apricot preserves, salt and pepper in a small microwave bowl and cook on high for 3 minutes, stirring each minute.

Add the orange mixture to the potatoes and toss lightly. Microwave on high for 10 minutes or until heated through. Baste with the sauce twice during final cooking. Garnish with the walnuts over the top.
