Simple and much better tasting than that marshmallow brown sugar stuff people serve at Thanksgiving. Enjoy this anytime, but it's perfect with the turkey! A slightly modified version of Claire's Roast Sweet Potatoes - largely to give measurements to the seasonings.

Maple Roasted Sweet Potatoes
4-5 medium sweet potatoes
1/3 cup pure maple syrup
2 T butter, melted
1 T fresh squeezed lemon juice
1/8 t salt
1/4 t fresh cracked black pepper
Preheat the oven to 400 F.
Arrange the cut into chunks or slices sweet potatoes in an even layer in a large (preferrably glass) 9x13 inch baking dish.
Combine the maple syrup, butter, lemon juice, salt and pepper in a small bowl and stir well. Pour the mixture over the sweet potatoes and toss to coat.
Cover with foil and bake for 15 minutes. Uncover, stir, and cook for about 45-50 minutes more until the sweet potatoes are tender - stir every 15 minutes to prevent burning and sticking to the pan.
