  3. Peel sweet potatoes. Cut lengthwise in half, and divide into eights. Boil until tender. Remove from heat after about 5 minutes. And let cool.

  4. Combine the remaining ingredients in a large bowl. Stir until aroma of lime and oil pervade the air. Create a smooth dark-brown glaze in the process, about 2 minutes.
