these were a wonderful change from the typical marshmallow topped version. I personally loved the tangy cranberries and the apricot taste.

    I made these for Thanksgiving instead of the traditional baked yams with brown sugar.I was wondering why this dish was so tart with the cranberries.Then I realized I forgot to put the maple syrup in them.You want to definitely put in the maple syrup to have that touch of sweetness

    Very Satisfying

    Marlene Asa from FREEBURG, IL

    I recently made this dish and it was so very good! Not having maple syrup, I substituted a sugar free maple flavored pancake syrup and the dish was still just absolutely divine! If you haven't tried this one you should.

    Sweet potatoes with cranberries

    Linda Paetz from Vacaville, CA

    I liked this recipe very much, and so did everyone at my Thanksgiving table. It was easy to make and tasted delicious. It had a subtle sweetness without being heavy. I used fresh cranberries instead of frozen and pure maple syrup. I also put some vegetable oil on the raw pecans and toasted them in the oven with the turkey for about 10 minutes. I got nothing but rave reviews from my guests. Thank you for an original and tasty meal.
