“I love sweet potatoes just about any way you make them, but my husband is much pickier about them, and this is his favorite sweet potato recipe. He doesn't want me to make them any other way now! I make these for most holidays, or just when we want something a little more special, and they have always been a huge hit. I have made this with fresh sweet potatoes, too - just use an equivalent amount, and peel, cook, and cool them before starting this recipe. They reheat well, too.”
