Author: Top of the Rock Astronaut / Labels:

Peel and grate sufficient raw sweet potatoes to make 5 cupfuls. Add 3 cupfuls of best West Indian molasses, 2 cupfuls of butter, 1 cupful each of preserved ginger and candied orange peel cut fine, 2 tablespoonfuls of mixed spices (cinnamon, nutmeg and cloves), 1 tablespoonful of ground ginger, 1 scant teaspoonful of salt. Mix all well together, turn into a deep buttered earthen dish and bake slowly in a moderate oven for from 2 to 3 hours, according to thickness. When done a knife blade run down to the bottom of the dish will come out clean. Serve hot, cutting in thick slices. It can be reheated 2 or 3 times if necessary. This recipe is said to be over 200 years old.
