SWEET POTATO AND PINEAPPLE CASSEROLE

This recipe is from an old acquaintance of my late mother.

4 tbsps butter
1 1/2 cups crushed pineapple, drained and juice reserved
3 cups sweet potatoes, cooked
1/2 cup brown sugar
salt to taste
1/8 tsp nutmeg
1/8 tsp ground cloves
1 cup reserved pinepple juice (add water if necessary to make a cup)
2 cups marshmallows

Melt butter; add pineapple. In a buttered casserole dish, place alternate layers of potatoes and pineapple/butter mixture. Springle with the brown sugar, salt, nutmeg, and cloves. Pour the juice over the casserole. Bake in a moderate oven, 375 degrees, for 25 to 30 minutes. Add marshmallows. Leave in oven until marshmallows are brown.
