Mmmm!! I really really liked this, the flavour was very good. I just made half the amount and I ate it all myself, I am embarrassed to say, but hey it was good so why not. I can't really describe the flavour, just that is was lovely and sweet and very tasty. I will be making this again, I haven't used a lot of sweet potatoes in the past, but I will rectify that now. Thank you for posting. Made for ZWT#6 2010.
