    pattikay in L.A.'s Note:

    From The New Book of Middle Eastern Food, posted for ZWT III for North Africa and the Middle East. The original recipe does not call for any sweetener, but I felt it needed just a touch of brown sugar and a hint of heat.

      This was a really unique take on sweet potatoes. The ginger and cayenne make it special. I tagged it because I thought it would be something that would be spicy enough to taste good if I omitted the salt and I was right! Thanks for a great option that I can use with my current low sodium diet.

      I love sweet potatoes and I love raisins so I just had to make this! I never would have thought of making sweet potatoes this way. My mom always just melts brown sugar on them. The raisins were a great addition, but I accidentally put to much of the spices. made for ZWT3
