Combine sweet potatoes and water to cover in a large Dutch oven. Bring to a boil. Reduce heat; cover and simmer 30 minutes or until tender. Drain and peel; slice potatoes lengthwise into 1/4-inch-thick slices. Place potatoes in a large skillet, and set aside.
Combine remaining ingredients in a small saucepan. Bring to a boil; stir until butter melts. Remove from heat; pour honey mixture over potatoes. Cook, uncovered, over medium heat 20 minutes, basting often with honey mixture. Transfer potatoes to a warm serving platter; spoon honey mixture over potatoes. Serve immediately.
