Honey-Glazed Sweet Potatoes

This is a new one. Sounds good.

Servings: 4

1 1/2 pounds sweet potatoes or yams, peeled and quartered
2/3 cup orange juice, divided
1/2 teaspoon ground ginger
1/2 teaspoon ground nutmeg
1 tablespoon butter or margarine
1 tablespoon cornstarch
1/3 cup honey

Combine sweet potatoes and 1/3 cup orange juice in 2-quart microwave-safe baking dish; sprinkle with ginger and nutmeg. Dot with butter.

Cover and microwave at HIGH (100%) 7 to 10 minutes or until sweet potatoes are tender, stirring halfway through cooking time.

Combine cornstarch, remaining 1/3 cup orange juice and honey in medium microwave-safe bowl. Microwave at HIGH 2 minutes or until thickened, stirring every 30 seconds.

Drain liquid from sweet potatoes; add to honey mixture. Microwave at HIGH 1 minute.

Pour sauce over sweet potatoes and microwave at HIGH 1 minute more or until sweet potatoes are thoroughly heated.
