On one of my many cookbook /recipe searches , I found a cookbook called Americana Cookery. I liked the name , but I loved some of the recipes in it even more. Thought I might place some of them here for safe keeping and to share

I just can't believe this recipe hasn't been rated yet. I think this is one of the best sweet potato dishes out there! So many people in different blogs have posted it as their own recipe but I found it almost 30 years ago in cookbook I've since lost during a move. Thank you for posting this!!!
