      This sauce made a lovely complement to the sweet potatoes. I made the sauce pretty much as writ, except used only about 3 tbl of maple syrup and sliced almonds instead of walnuts, because that's what I had. I microwaved the sweet potatoes and topped them with the sauce. But don't think this sauce is just for potatoes - I served it also as an accompaniment to battered fish fillets and vegetable samosas, and it went really well with both. It would be great with chicken and pork, as well. A very lovely condiment.

      We really enjoyed these sweet potatoes. The cranberries added a nice tangy surprise along with the dijon mustard and I loved the crunch of the walnuts. I didn't add the onions; but otherwise, I made as directed. The cranberry mixture really gave the potatoes a nice presentation. Made for the Newest Zaar tag, January, 2012.
