2 lb  sweet potatoes, cubed
1 cup  Juice, apple, unsweetened, canned/btl
2 oz  honey
1 tsp  fresh ginger root
0 1/2 tsp  ground cinnamon
0 1/4 tsp  cardamom, ground
0 1/2 tsp  salt
  1. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F. Carefully lower the sweet potatoes into about 8 cups of boiling water (enough to cover them) and simmer for 5 minutes.
  2. Meanwhile, stir the juice, maple syrup or honey, ginger, cinnamon, cardamom, and salt together in a lightly oiled 2 quart baking dish. Drain the sweet potatoes, add them to the baking dish, and stir well to coat with the juice mixture.
  3. Bake, uncovered, for about an hour, stirring every 15 minutes, until the sweet potatoes are tender and the juice mixture has thickened and coats the potatoes.
