Although I do have my own ways of making tasty sweet potato dishes, THIS IS REALLY OUTSTANDING, in preparation AND presentation as well as in taste ~ ABSOLUTELY LOVED IT! Don't know if it was meant to be done this way, but I didn't peel the potatoes (I usually don't, 'cause I like the skins!), & that just added to the overall taste AND nutrition! (All that sugar IS nutritious, isn't it?) Thanks for a wonderful keeper! [Tagged, made & reviewed for one of my groupmates in the Aus/NZ Recipe Swap #29]
