  • Add broth, packed brown sugar, and fresh lime juice; season with salt and pepper. Bring to a boil; reduce to a simmer, cover, and cook until crisp-tender, 10 minutes. Uncover, and cook over medium-high until sweet potatoes are tender and liquid is syrupy, 7 to 9 minutes more (there should be only a small amount of liquid remaining).

  • Remove skillet from heat; add butter, and swirl skillet until melted. Season with salt and pepper.

Made this for Thanksgiving - phenomenal! My family wanted to cut back on sugar so we did this instead of the marshmallow-covered usual. Served with roasted duck, wild rice, stuffed mushrooms, duck gravy and fresh cranberry sauce. Thank you for this recipe!!
