ORANGE CANDIED SWEET POTATOES

6 sweet potatoes, halved
2 tsp salt
1/2 cup boiling water
3 tbsp oleo*
1 tbsp orange juice
3/4 cup corn syrup
1/4 cup brown sugar

Combine the sweet potatoes, salt, and boiling water in a saucepan and simmer, covered, until tender (about 15 to 20 minutes).  Pour off all but 1/4 cup of the stock from the cooking.  Dot with the oleo. 

Combine the orange juice, corn syrup, brown sugar in a bowl and blend well.  Pour over the sweet potatoes.  Simmer, basting frequently for 15 minutes.

*I do not change these old recipes and try to type them word for word.  However, I personally believe you should use butter instead of margarines.  It is my belief that the body can better handle what nature supplies over manufactured products.
