Orange Sweet Potatoes

Another recipe from a Jelke’s Good Luck Margarine box.

We talked about the history of Jelke’s in the post for mince pie from this box.

Here’s the back:

From the box of G.Y. from Wichita, Kansas.

Orange Sweet Potatoes

5 cups mashed sweet potato (5 to 8 sweet potatoes, depending upon the size)
1-1/2 teaspoons salt
1 cup brown sugar
1/3 cup Jelke’s Good Luck Margarine
4 oranges
8 marshmallows
4 candied cherries

Combine sweet potatoes, salt, brown sugar and Good Luck Margarine. Blend thoroughly. Wash oranges, cut in half and remove the pulp from the skins. Notch the edges of the orange skins. Stuff skins with sweet potato mixture, place a marshmallow in the center of each. Garnish with 1/2 of a candied cherry. Place on a broiler rack and cook at broiler heat until heated through and the marshmallow is a golden brown. Serves 8.
