These are very good. Lots of chopping (the raw sweet potatoes are hard!), but well worth the effort.

This were very good, but must agree with other reviewers that there is ALOT of chopping to be done, so I would recommend to plan for it to take you a while (especially if you plan on slicing your finger open like I did.LOL) The orange flavour really comes through on these, so if you like that orange hint to your foods, this one's for you; its not in my personal taste however. I left the skins on also just as a personal preference and subbed paprika for the ground red pepper. Pretty good overall, thanks!
