  • 1 pound of brisket of beef or any fat meat
  • 5 medium-sized sweet potatoes
  • 1/2 cup of sugar
  • piece of sour salt (citric acid)


Wash prunes or plums and put on to boil with the brisket; when the meat is tender add sweet potatoes which have been pared and cut in small pieces. Place the meat on top, add sugar and sour salt. Cover and bake until nicely browned. If gravy should cook away add some warm water.
