Top Review by ChefLee

This is a good recipe for a "not-so-sweet" sweet potato. It brings out more of the flavor of the sweet potato which I don't really think is too sweet as its name implies(unless you throw in the typical marshmallows, brown sugar, etc.) I used pineapple juice instead of orange and light rum instead of dark. I had to remove mine from the heat at about 7 minutes and skip the extra 5 minutes. I just added my rum mix at that point because it would have burned otherwise for me. The sauce was nice and thick and a pretty brown glaze color. Thanks for a new and different way to cook sweet potatoes!
