    AcadiaTwo's Note:

    This recipe is a family favorite and it is the number one requested food at family gatherings. I have no idea where the recipe originally came from, but I know my Mother has been perfecting it for years. Now in our family there are two thoughts on the proper way to eat them. Some like them with butter to cut the sweetness and the others eat them plain. Your choice! Enjoy.

      Amazing! I love sweet potatoes. I am always looking for different ways to cook them and this will now be one of my favorite ways. They were so tender and delicious.
