Sweet Potatoes with Cranberries
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

What a delicious side dish! Easy to make, but very hard to resist! Make and enjoy some today!
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.
these were a wonderful change from the typical marshmallow topped version. I personally loved the tangy cranberries and the apricot taste.
Sweet potatoes with cranberries
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.

Very different treatment for cranberries. Good color for the yams.
