    MadCity Dale's Note:

    This recipe is taken from "the ultimate GULLAH cookbook", a book about the African American Gullah people, a taste of Food, History and Culture from the Gullah people of southeastern USA. I have slightly embellished the original recipe to put the sweet potatoe into a pastry to be a finger food vegetable. These pocket pies will be served at the Northside Farmers Market JuneteenthFest. A great tasting food combining USA's low country cooking and Australia Pocket Pies. Options are to combine sweet potatoes with a can of sliced small white potatoes. Pies are less sweet and more like a side vegetable. Or put any other vegetables you'd like to combine with sweet potatoes-bell peppers, hot chili's, leeks, etc.

      Made these for a BBQ potluck recently as well as to see how they worked out before making them for an up-coming finger food buffet that I'm planning! Well, I used the very orange colored yams for this & they turned out great ~ WONDERFULLY DIFFERENT & VERY TASTY! Thanks for a keeper of a recipe!
