Slow Cooker Orange Spiced Sweet Potatoes

This sweet potato recipe comes from an old cookbook I have called Rival Crock Pot 3 Books in One: Slow Cooker Favorites, Winning Slow Cooker Recipes, & Slow Cooker Recipes for All Occasions.

The potatoes turn out so sweet and yummy in the Crock Pot. So delicious!  Hope you enjoy.

Here's the recipe....

2 lbs sweet potatoes, peeled and diced

1/2 cup packed brown sugar 

1/2 cup butter (1 stick), cut into small pieces

1 teaspoon ground cinnamon

1/2 teaspoon ground nutmeg

juice of 1 medium orange

1/4 teaspoon salt

1 teaspoon vanilla

Place sweet potatoes, brown sugar, butter, cinnamon, nutmeg, orange juice, salt, and vanilla in crock pot. Cover and cook on low 4 hrs or on high 2 hrs, or until potatoes are tender.
