      I scaled this back for 3 serves and I did wrap my sweet potatoe in alfoil and roasted in the oven and peeled and cut into big bite size pieces, I used 1 large granny smith, peeled, cored and quartered, cut in half and each slice cut into three. For diabetics who can tolerate artificial sweeteners I would recommend splenda, hence I cut back on the apple and used brown sugar. But WOW we (DM, DS and myself) really enjoyed this with our lamb chops (Lemon and Oregano Lamb Chops) and steamed vegetables. Thank you Mikekey for a great recipe, made for Please Review My Recipe.

      This is so good! I peeled, cut into the chunks and boiled for 14 minutes. I used margarine, but otherwise the rest was the same. It turned out more like mashed potatoes, but I think it tastes better that way anyways! Another great recipe to use up my sherry that I bought for a previous tag game! :)
