We only have two more weeks with Jacques Pepin and I still have plenty of recipes of his I want to make. So while I usually use other chef’s recipes for the PL I needed this one for Pepin.


I love Sweet Potatoes and this is the beginning of the season and they are starting to cure and gain sweetness. I am always looking for new ways to cook them. This one was perfect since the oven was on anyway.

    4 medium sweet potatoes (3 pounds), peeled and sliced 1 1/2 inch thick
    1/2 teaspoon salt
    3/4 teaspoon freshly ground pepper
    3 tablespoons unsalted butter, cut into 1/2-inch pieces
    1/3 cup pure maple syrup
    1/3 cup water

Peel and slice the sweet potatoes into 1″ slices. Place potato slices in water and bring to a boil. Lower the heat and cook until just tender
Place in a casserole dish and dot each slice with butter.
Drizzle maple sugar over potatoes and then sprinkle with water.
Bake 15 minutes at 400 degrees. Turn the slices over and bake an additional 25 minutes until tender and slightly browned. Original Recipe

I made about 1/4th of the recipe just for me. Easy. Sweet. Tasty. Definitely a repeat.
