I make sweet potatoes a lot, but typically in the microwave. This was a nice treat, because usually I only get to enjoy real baked sweet potatoes during the holidays or at restaurants. Nothing compares to real oven-baked potatoes, no matter what kind they are. Thanks for posting! Made for the Emerald City Shakers for ZWT7
