Very tasty: enjoyed this (scaled back for two) with TheGrumpyChef's Recipe #347218. I never use juice concentrates so - influenced also by Nasseh's review - I made this with orange juice, and I added thyme but otherwise followed the recipe exactly. Thanks for sharing this recipe. Made for PRMR.

I enjoyed this dish but I thought the pineapple flavor was a little strange with the sweet potato. If I make again I will only use orange juice. I did add 1 tsp of cinnamon & some raisins to the sweet potatoes before cooking. Made for Please Review My Recipe

Not a bad dish, everybody enjoyed it, except we thought the orange flavor was too overpowering. Other than that the other ingredients complimented this dish. Made for Zaar Tag.
