READY IN: 55mins
Recipe by Rita1652

You may get confused when eating this yummy side. Yes! It is a side not a dessert. The flavor of this is so yummy. You have the sweetness from the potatoes, brown sugar, dried cranberries and juice. Yet tanginess from the cranberries & juice. And a nice bite and sweetness from the Ginger. Real Comfort food!This recipe uses my optional Mixed-Herb Compound Butter for Veggies or Meat or your choice and Crystallized Ginger , Ginger Syrup & Ginger Sugar or store bought. Enjoy!

This was easy and pretty. My Mother made this for Thanksgiving. I don't like sweet potatoes and still don't after this recipe but my Mother said to give it 3 stars she "liked them" and my husband "liked them".
