Another great recipe from Mikekey! Who knew that sweet potato and fresh ginger would go together so well? This was delicious! Thanks Mikekey! :)

I was in a bit of a time crunch so I microwaved the potato (after stabbing it to death) and then proceeded with the rest of the recipe. I loved the addition of the ginger!! I'll ake them like this many times in future so thank you for posting! Made for Susie's World Tour

I will never get over how the addition of a couple ingredients transforms the flavour of a vegetable. This is what happens to the sweet potatotes when the ginger and bit of brown sugar are added. Wonderful flavour - Easy do-ahead recipe that will be repeated over & over again. This may be my favorite sweet potato recipe ever.
