Grandma's Candied Sweet Potatoes

My grandmother passed away 12 years ago this week. She was a terrific cook. This is one of our favorite recipes that she used to make every year for Thanksgiving.

8 large sweet potatoes
1/2 box brown sugar
1/2 cup white sugar
salt and pepper to taste
1/2 stick margarine or butter
1 heaping spoon crisco shortening

In electric skillet place shortening and margarine, let melt. Peel and slice potatoes, slice them thick. Place in skillet, salt and pepper then add both kinds of sugar. Next cover with water, then place lid on top and put on medium heat (320 degrees). Leave there till starts cooking good, then turn down to low heat. Just high enough so they continue to cook. Let cook like this for about an hour or until all water has cooked off and ther eis a nice syrup around the potatoes. Do not stir. If necessary while they are cooking move them around gently in the pan with a pointed fork. If you stir them, they will get mushy.
