- 3 large sweet potatoes
- 8 tablespoons butter 2 tablespoons margarine
- 1 1/3 cup sugar
- 1-1/2 teaspoons vanilla extract
- 1 teaspoon ground nutmeg
- 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
- 2 1/2 cups water
Peel the sweet potatoes and cut them in half the long way (tip to tip), then cut each half into 3/4 inch slices.
Melt the butter and margarine in a pot. Add sugar, nutmeg cinnamon, vanilla, and water and bring to a boil
