Dr Pepper Sweet Potatoes

Let's make some Dr Pepper Sweet Potatoes.  To start, you have to make sure you use the Dr Pepper that is made with sugar instead of high fructose corn syrup.  This used to be the purview of Dublin, TX but now you can find sugar sweetened DP at most grocery stores.

I'm usually not one for formal recipes so I won't bother with listing ingredients and giving measurements.  That's no way to live.  Here's the first few things you'll need:

First peel, cube and steam your sweet potatoes until the are fork tender.

Next pour four of the bottles of Dr Pepper into a pot along with a few pats of butter and a few squirts of honey and bring to a boil.  The goal is to evaporate most of the liquid and caramelize the sugar.

Add in the juice from a lemon, a few dashes of Worcestershire Sauce and Soy Sauce (and/or Tabasco if you like).  Once it reduces down to a sauce consistency add the cooked sweet potatoes and combine.

Serve a generous portion alongside just about anything.

Now let's eat!
