    How can i make syrupy sweet potatos like you get from a can?

    such as bruces yams?

    they use corn syrup but i was wondering how i would cook regular sweet potatoes and get that syrupy look and taste.

    Honestly, would you want them to be syrupy and sweet? They have a wonderful sweet taste and texture to start with.

    I guess you could bake them, then mash they up with maple syrup or something...or you could just leave them be.

    Make a simple syrup with an alternative sweetener and water? Or coconut nectar, but I think coconut nectar tastes funky (in a good way)

    cook them longer than you think you'd need to

    bake them in the oven til juice coming out caramelizes

    microwave them a few minutes extra

    slice and boil til the water cooks down. the canned stuff (or southern cooking) add some kind of sugar. if you want syrupy sweet, you can add a little brown sugar/cinnamon to the water

    We roast them with butter and maple syrup. They are dandy candies!

    As there already pretty sweet I tend to think less is more but any of the following work fine for adding that extra sweetness/syrupyness.
    Maple syrup
    Jaggery goor
    Muscovado sugar

    would this just be as simple as 1/2 cup maple syrup and 1/4 cup water? and heat to a boil and then mix in to super csoft cooked sweet potato chunks per blood orchids recommendation? I'm gonna make some marshamllows with hone/water/gelatin recipe ive seen to top it with so i just want this to be the best possible indulgence of ooey gooey sweet potatoey deliciousness. carbs, calories, fat, insulin, leptin, what the hell ever else be fucking damned.

    I wouldent add any water.. just drizzle maple syrup over the (baked)Sweet potato chunks along with any spices you want to add and cook for a bit more till the maple syrup starts to candy/carmelize

    adding water would just make it watery.

    Reduce some apple cider until it's syrupy and add butter and cinnamon to taste before pouring over well-baked sweet potatoes.
