5 stars all the way. My Aunt made the best candied sweet potato in the world and these rivaled hers. So sweet, cinnamoney and easy to make. Even better the next day. I would of liked the sauce to be thicker, My potatoes were tender before the sauce was reduced. I removed the potatos and continued to reduce the sauce.

Is it 1/2 cup sugar? The recipe only states 1/2 sugar.
