Caramelized Sweet Potatoes

Not too long ago, I bought some lovely reddish colored sweet potatoes.  They turned out to be really, really sweet.  This is a great way to make them simply scrumptious, without putting some casserole together.  It’s a great side, anytime.  The flat sides are a bit chewy from the natural sugar of the potato caramelizing.

    Laini, my brother used to prepared sweet potatoes this way & they were delicious…I do not think he used any seasoning.
    Question: Frankly Delicious seasoning that you use in a lot of dishes is not sold here. Approximately what is in it so I can create something similar to keep on hand?

      Glenda, the ingredient list is – salt, black pepper, garlic, paprika, sugar, chili pepper, onion, cumin, celery, turmeric, oregano,dextrose, papain, calcium stearate (prevents caking)
      Papain should be in meat tenderizers.
      If you decide you want to order it from the guy that makes it, his number is 800-725-2942

        Laini, Thanks for taking the time to type out all those ingredients. I should have Googled Frankly Delicious instead of bothering you. I just placed an order – sounds like a lifetime supply (14 oz – geesh almost a pound of spices – will share with my children. Hope I am not sorry about ordering it because I do not care for ‘cumin’ but it is way down the list. I just assumed it was something you purchased at the wonderful TX H.E.B. stores – wish we had them here. When I was a child my parents shopped @ Swindall’s little grocery store – they lived in back & I remember their 2 sons. One was named something like Crongie, but I do not remember the other name. glenda

          Actually I buy 2 (14oz) at a time, and I never share it! I have to buy locally at Ranchers – which is the same family as Swindall’s (Swindall’s closed). The cumin is not a predominant flavor.
