I have never tried this recipe, but my mom got it from a co-worker. It is supposed to be really good, so we are going to try it soon.

Like another reviewer, I made this for Thanksgiving and it was a huge hit. My brother-in-law said this was the best sweet potato dish he'd ever had, and I'm inclined to agree. It's a wonderful mix of sweet and tangy. Definitely a keeper!
