    I've had this in my cookbook for years, and I'm SO glad I finally tried it! These were some of the most unique and yummy sweet potatoes I've ever had! I made the brown sugar version, and the way the orange flavor binds with the sweet potato flavor just creates this really different yet delicious taste. Since I was cooking more than a pound of sweet potatoes, I just diced and cooked them in my veggie steamer, then skipped down to step 5 and continued from there. This made it super easy next day, as I just whipped up a new batch of glaze and added it to my precooked potatoes, making a fresh batch. My mom, who does not care about sweet potatoes, told me "Now I would eat sweet potatoes if you make them like THAT!" I served them with some turkey and recipe #207581 and what a yummy dinner! I think this would also compliment chicken as well. Thank you Dancer^ for sharing!
