This is very similar to a Japanese recipe sweet potato recipe I make, but I think this is a better version because the liquid is reduced, and I will be switching to this one in the future. The sweet potatoes are good hot, as well as at room temperature. I'd recommend using organic lemons if you can possibly get them, as conventional ones may have pesticides on them.
this was awfull! 3 of us tasted it, and we all (while trying to be polite...) spat it out.
I think the lemon peel gave it a horrid bitter after taste, just not our bag, so I am not gonna rate it, cause obviously others liked it.
Sweet sunshine! Made using what we call sweet potatoes and believe others call a yam (nice dark orange color). Made half recipe and wish I had made a full recipe. For half recipe used 3/4 cup water which took about half hour to simmer down to a thin syrup. These are great at room temp and taste like sweet sunshine. You can bet I will be making again. Thanks for the post.
Used apples instead of lemon (big change I know but I don't like citrus fruit)and I sprinkled some linseed on top, used less water as below. Result very tasty. Will use again when I have sweet potatos.
Made with the sweet potatoes that are yellow inside, this was all yellow and tasted yellow - bright from the lemon and mellow from the sweet potatoes. It looked pretty on the table. I sliced the sweet potatoes about 1 centimeter thick, but the lemons even thinner. The only trouble I had was with the "water to almost cover," as the pieces tended to float up as I poured, and I ended up with too much liquid. It was still really good though.
