Ingredients

  • 6

    medium sweet potatoes or yams

  • 1/4

    cup all-vegetable shortening or Oil

  • 1/4

    cup packed light brown sugar

  • 1/2

    teaspoon salt

  • 1/4

    cup fresh orange juice

  • 1/4

    cup water

  • 1-1/4

    cups fresh cranberries, rinsed

  • 1/2

    teaspoon cornstarch

  • 2

    tablespoons cold water

Directions

Preheat oven to 400. Wash sweet potatoes and pat dry. Prick with a fork, place in a shallow baking dish, and bake at 400: for 40 to 50 minutes or until soft. During the last 10 minutes of baking, prepare sauce. Melt shortening in a medium saucepan (or place oil in saucepan). Add brown sugar, salt, orange juice, and 1/4 cup water, stirring over low heat until sugar dissolves. Add cranberries and bring to boiling. Reduce heat and simmer covered for 5 minutes or until cranberries start to pop. Combine cornstarch with 2 tablespoons cold water blending until smooth. Stir into cranberries; cook, stirring constantly, until sauce comes to boiling. Reduce heat and cook for 1 to 2 minutes or until mixture is slightly thickened. Make a lengthwise cut in the center of each potato; press open from bottom. Place sweet potatoes on a serving platter. Top each with cranberry sauce.
