    Peel, cut and boil potatoes just until tender. Drain and set aside. In a pan, melt butter add brown sugar,orange marmalade and fresh orange juice. On low heat let cook until bubbly, then add the potatoes,making sure each one is covered with the sauce. This has been my traditional sweet potato receipe for years.
