- ¾ Cup Brown sugar, packed

- Wash the sweet potatoes to remove any dirt
- Boil water in a saucepot, add salt to it.
- Add sweet potatoes to the sauce pot
- Boil till sweet potatoes are soft, use knife for a prick test. They should be a little tender and not to soft (like al dente pasta). It took me approximately 8 minutes on a medium heat to get tender sweet potatoes. Boiling time may vary for you.
- Immediately drain and rinse with cold water. Reserve the water in which you boiled the sweet potatoes.
- In a separate saucepan, add butter, cloves, maple syrup and brown sugar.
- Keep stirring on medium heat till the brown sugar starts dissolving in the maple syrup.
- Add ground ginger, cinnamon, cayenne powder, salt and lemon juice.
- Keep stirring to mix all the ingredients.
- Boil till you see a lot of bubbles and the mix turns into a runny liquid.
- Add boiled sweet potatoes and reduce the heat to a low
- Gently stir after 3-5 minutes to evenly coat the sweet potatoes with maple glaze.
- Remove from heat after another 5 minutes and transfer into a serving dish.
- Garnish with topping of your choice, happy thanksgiving!
