Sweet Potatoes in Orange Sage Glaze

Sweet Potatoes in Orange Sage Glaze
The original recipe this is based on uses frozen orange concentrate, which is readily available in the US, but no longer on sale in the UK.

So instead I use orange marmalade, with balsamic vinegar to cut the sweetness.

An easy slow cooker recipe, this makes a great side dish for BBQ.
