These turned out terrific! I followed the recipe exact. I wasn't quite sure I was going to like them when they were finished cooking as I expected the sauce to bake in more and for them to look for cooked. I guess I was expecting them to look more like normal cooked potato wedges and the sauce not still be gooey on the outside, but once I put them in my mouth I was extremely pleased! Went over well with the whole family + guest and we will be making these again soon!

I liked this new way of looking at sweet potatoes. I must admit that I forgot the water but they still were very good. I suspect that the water helps keep the vinegar and sugar from burning, but I covered mine with foil the last 15 minutes when the syrup was starting to burn in the pan. Thanks for posting Juniperwoman. I will make them again. Roxygirl Roxygirl
