3-4 sweet potatoes, diced into ½ cubes (peeled or unpeeled is fine)
½ tsp salt
½ tsp pepper
1 tsp garlic powder
Dash of ground ginger
2 tbsp olive oil
½ cup potent Birch Boys Loose Chaga Tea
1/4 tsp cinnamon
2 tbsp brown sugar
Dash of lemon juice
Yields 4-5 servings
Preheat oven to 450 degrees fahrenheit.
Cube your sweet potatoes into ½ cubes.
In your large mixing bowl, add sweet potato cubes, garlic powder, salt, pepper and olive oil. Stir or toss to coat. Reserve empty mixing bowl for use later.
Spread coated sweet potato cubes onto a large baking sheet. For the best result keep the potatoes in one layer (don’t let them overlap.)
Put sweet potatoes in oven and set timer to 20 minutes.
While your potatoes are cooking, get started on the glaze. Add Woodlife Ranch Maple Syrup, Birch Boys Chaga Tea, cinnamon and brown sugar to a small saucepan and mix.
Heat on low-medium until the mixture is thick and syrup-like, this will take approximately 20 minutes.
Once sweet potatoes are roasted (test by trying to crush one with a fork, if it happily yields, then they are ready!) pull them out and turn off your oven.
Using the reserved mixing bowl, add sweet potatoes and ½ of your maple glaze mixture, mixing well to coat.
Put the sweet potatoes back onto the baking sheet and into the warm oven (oven should be off) and let sit for 5-10 minutes. This will allow the glaze to soak into the sweet potatoes and slightly caramelize.
Remove the sweet potatoes from the oven, plate and drizzle with leftover Chaga Maple Glaze and serve!
