This is more "interesting" than plain potato latkes, though I must confess that by the time I got around to making them, I had run out of patience to use the the stovetop... I baked them on a sprayed cookie sheet. I don't know if that's why the shredded sweet potatoes were so crisp, almost to the point of being raw... the taste was great, though. Thanks for posting.
