Sweet Japanese Sweet Potato:

3. Once you’re done, grab cinnamon, maple syrup, brown sugar, nutmeg, and pecans.

4. In a small frying pan add your pecans and drizzle on 1 TBSP of maple syrup, and add cinnamon and nutmeg to your liking.

5. Bake them in the oven for 5-8 minutes.

6. In that same frying pan you used before, add your diced potatoes and drizzle on about 2-3 TBSPs of maple syrup. Now add 2 TBSPs of brown sugar and stir. Cover it with a lid and let it simmer on low heat for 5 minutes. Once they are soft add cinnamon and nutmeg to your liking. Stir well and set to the side.

7. Top with your toasted pecans.
