1 to 1 1/2 lb. sweet potatoes, well scrubbed
3 Tbls. unsalted butter
2/3 cup pure maple syrup
salt and freshly ground pepper
Preheat oven to 400 degrees F. Slice each sweet potato in half lengthwise, and slice each half crosswise into 1-inch-thick half-moons. Melt butter in a large cast-iron or other ovenproof skillet over medium heat. Add sweet potatoes; toss to coat evenly. Add maple syrup; toss potatoes to coat, and bring to a boil. Transfer skillet to oven; cook, stirring occasionally, until potatoes are golden, well glazed, and tender when pierced with a paring knife, about 20 minutes. Remove from oven, and season with salt and pepper. Serve warm, garnished with a few a small sprigs of fresh thyme.
