Tips & Variations

No special items needed.



I doubled the recipe and used 4 regular sized sweet potatoes. I did add a tad more of each spice too to compensate for more potatoes. We really loved them with the rest of our Thanksgiving dinner and we will have them again at Christmas!

I made this recipe using 2 large sweet potatoes (No yams to be found this time of year) and followed recipe accordingly except for not using the garnish. Wow, I am really impressed with this, the flavour is amazing!!! This will be seeing many repeats here.
