Apricot Sweet Potato Casserole

READY IN: 40mins
Recipe by Gramma Peg

This recipe came from a neighbor when I requested recipies for a cookbook our local history group was getting together. It has been a favorite of my family and many others that read it in our self published cookbook " The Main Menu of Memories". If you use fresh potatoes, they should be cooked first to al dente stage.
