2poundssweet potatoespeeled and chopped into large chunks
1 1/2tablespoonsbrown sugar
1jalapeño pepperthinly sliced (keep the seeds in!)
Preheat the oven to 425 degrees F. Place the sweet potatoes in a baking dish or on a baking sheet in a single layer. I like to chop my sweet potatoes a bit larger here – like 1 1/2 to 2 inch chunks. If you chop yours smaller, make sure to roast for a shorter period of time.
Drizzle the potatoes with the melted butter, sprinkle with salt and pepper and sprinkle on the brown sugar. Toss and stir so all of the pieces are coated. Roasted the potatoes for 20 minutes. Remove the dish from the oven and gently flip the potatoes, roasting again for 20 minutes. The potatoes should be tender, caramely and charred in some places.
Heat the honey and the jalapeños in a saucepan over medium-low heat. Let the honey come to a light simmer then turn off the honey. Let it sit for 5 minutes. Strain the honey through a fine mesh sieve to remove the peppers and the seeds.
When the sweet potatoes are golden and caramely and delicious, remove them from the oven and drizzle them with the honey to serve. Serve immediately!
