    This was a lovely sweet potato treat. I loved the ease of making this in the crockpot. I cut my potato chunks a little bigger so the 5 hour cooking time was perfect. A nice sweet and sour flavor that is reminiscent of the Orient. I enjoyed the citrus flavor that the tamarind and the lemon grass created. Thank you so much for sharing. Made for Diabetic Tailgate Party.
