This tasty recipe from the Dominican Republic is usually made with a type of island pumpkin called calabaza. I've adapted it to use with regular sweet potatoes.

We loved the added citrus, tangy and not too sweet.Made as written and the outcome was wonderful.I thought the potato's might get a little mushy, but they turned out beautifully.<br/>Thanks for a fantastic recipe morgainegeiser.
