  1. I though for sure these would be a hit as we do like sweet potatoes. I thought they were very good - smooth and silky, almost like a mousse - they might work well in a terrine as well. Mr Grumpy took one bite and - well, I won't say anything more. I would use this technique again - so simple - but need to stop short and leave some lumps or something for Mr Grumpy!!!
  2. I used 500 grams of raw sweet potato flesh and followed through with a 2 serve of the recipe and it was adequate for 3 of us with other sides and was greatly enjoyed, thank you Maya's Mama, made for I Recommended and on loof's recommendation.
  3. Lovely creamy sweet potatoes! I used a hand-held mixer and the potatoes were smooth with a wonderful texture. Thanks for sharing the recipe!
