Ginger-Honey Sweet Potatoes

1 t ground ginger
1 t ground cardamom
2 T lemon juice
3 T honey
2 T butter (or butter substitute)
1 c water
6 c sweet potatoes, cubed

1. In a large pan heat the water, ginger, cardamon, lemon juice, honey, and butter to just below boiling temperature.
2. Add the sweet potatoes and simmer until the sweet potatoes are tender. Approximately 10 minutes.

I like to serve fried rice with this dish.

"...he saved us, not because of righteous things we had done, but because of his mercy."  Titus 3:5a  NIV

The only real adaptation I made to this recipe was to substitute ground ginger for ginger root. I seem to seldom have fresh ginger root on hand. The original recipe came from page 223 in Garden Way's Joy of Gardening Cookbook.
