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!
Made this last year and was requested to bring it for Thanksgiving this year. It is delicious! Mouth-watering flavor. I will use it throughout this holiday season. It is easy to do and not too time-consuming. But worth every minute of one's efforts.
