Not too sweet & smooth as silk. Easy peasy to put together. Not just for fall and winter holidays at home. Great for week night dessert (cooks while you have supper) or to bring to holiday gathering (travels well). Do not waste your money on canned sweet potatoes - roast your own while something else cooks in the oven. Scrub them off and put on foil and roast at 350 to 425 until the innards collapse from the skin. I roast lots after going gleaning and freeze in quart sized freezer bags.
