  • 4 lbs. sweet potatoes, peeled and cut into 3/4 to 1 inch pieces
  • 4 tbsp butter
  • 1 can 14 oz. Ocean Spray jellied cranberry sauce
  • 1/3 cup orange juice up to 1/4 cup more if deemed necessary
  • 1 tsp salt


  • Cook the sweet potatoes until they are just barely tender, 5 mins.
  • Drain and place the potatoes into a greased 9 by 13 baking dish.
  • Place the cranberry sauce and butter into a sauce pan, break up the jellied cranberries and cook until dissolved. Then add the orange juice and salt.
  • Pour the sauce over the potatoes and give them a stir to coat.
  • Cover the baking dish tightly with foil and bake at 300 to 350 degrees for 60 minutes, stirring every 20 minutes. Leave uncovered for the last 20 minutes.
  • Taste and add up to 1/4 cup more orange juice if necessary to increase the orange flavor.  Serve hot.
