Jerkins' Family Favorites, Part 2

Our family recipe book is a collection of delicious foods with recipes from so many different people. I hope you were able to try last week’s green bean bundles! This week, I am excited to bring you two of our family favorites: marinated carrots and sweet potato casserole.



Getting your children to eat their vegetables can be a challenge, but my mother-in-law had the solution with this quick and easy carrot recipe. This was a must-have menu item at our family gatherings any time of year, especially during the holidays. These carrots are so tasty that even the kids ask for seconds!


2 pounds baby carrots (cut into fourths)

1 teaspoon salt

1 teaspoon sugar

1 8-ounce can tomato sauce

1 onion (sliced and separated into rings)

1/3 cup chopped green pepper

1 cup sugar

2/3 cup salad oil

1 teaspoon prepared mustard
