    Mirj's Note:

    This makes a great fat-free side-dish. You can substitute chopped apples for either the raisins or the cranberries.

      Sorry Mirj but I over baked the sweet potato so the boat wouldn't float - The skin just fell off the potato so I did it as a casserole and it was delicious. I will make this again and make the boat float. It will look so attractive
