Curried Sweet Potato Surprise

Rated as 4.6 out of 5 Stars

"I was given a recipe as an alternative to the traditional 'sweet' sweet potato dishes. I was very dubious at first, but I went ahead, made it with fresh sweet potatoes (not canned, as they are not available in Canada), made my own adjustments and gave it a go. The finished product looked, smelled and tasted FANTASTIC! Not mushy, and the flavors mingle beautifully! People are pleasantly surprised when they taste it. Enjoy!"

This is delicious, and even better the second day. I used fresh apples, pears and canned pineapple, not peaches. I used honey to replace some of the sugar. I cooked it longer because we were...

I love this recipe. It's the second time I made it!

This was great. I used fresh pears, pineapple and canned peaches. I nuked the sweet potato a couple of minutes before cubing. I didn't use the curry as I don't have any but may try it next time....
