  • Scrub your sweet potatoes under running water, then place in a large stock pot. Cover with water and place on the stove top over high heat. Bring to a boil and cook for about 20 minutes, until just fork tender. Remove the potatoes and let cool.
    Preheat your oven to 350°F.
  • Once the potatoes are cool you should be able to peel off the skin with your hands. Trim the ends and cut each potato, horizontally, into 2″ rounds. Place in a medium casserole dish.
  • Pour 1/2 Cup of the pineapple juice from the can over the potatoes and sprinkle the brown sugar oven them evenly.
  • Top with the pineapple slices and cherries. 
  • Cover with foil and bake for about 45 minutes.
