I used a very large sweet potatoe (about 700grams) which was plenty for 3 of us and I did use sugar free maple syrup for diabetic reasons but otherwise followed through but I personally found it too sweet but then I don't particularly like sweet but the DS and DM really loved it. Mine were cooked in 40 minutes but maybe they were a little smaller than intended. Thank you Queen of Cuisine, made for Diabetic forum December 2010.

Awesome potatoes Queenie, just awesome. What can I say, I loved this tasty treat, the flavor and texture of this potatoe dish was excellant, sweet, tart and tangy with a lovely burst of flavor from the roasted macadamia nuts. All the flavors were perfectly balanced. I also loved the addition of the balsamic vinegar, I used the fig option, it worked perfectly in this dish. Thanks so much for sharing.

Very nice sweet potato dish. I omitted the salt and mustard (personal preference). It made a lovely side dish. Thanks for sharing!
