Delicious and different! My son and I really enjoyed these. I agree with some of the other reviewers that you have to cook the sauce down till it loses that strong alcohol flavor and develops a glaze-like consistency. Best sweet potato recipe I've ever tried - definitely a keeper for me!
I made it three times over the Thanksgiving holiday (three different Thanksgivings... mmmmmm) and every time, people wanted the recipe. Its delicious, and I recommend cooking it longer than the recipe says by an extra 20-30 minutes.
Delicious! Much more sophisticated flavor than the usual candied sweet potatoes with marshmallows. The recipe did not say to cook until the glaze thickens but I assume that's what is supposed to happen. It did take awhile to thicken but it didn't require constant stirring so I was able to work on other foods while it was cooking.
As a B.S. nutritionist I am always looking for low-cal low-fat options for my patients. This is a lot less sweet than regular candied sweet potatoes. I and my diabetic husband really enjoyed this recipe. The brandy really brings out the natural sweetness of the sweet potatoes and isn't masked by excessive marshmellows!!! I've even shared this recipe with my nutrition ed. classes!
Very good - most definitely not your ordinary yams with melted marshmellows on top. These had a distinct flavor that was not rooted in sugary sweetness. Instead it was much more refined and complex while the dish itself was lighter on the palette than the standard faire.
These were the hit of Thanksgiving dinner. It took a while for the glaze to reduce but the end result was heavenly. The brandy added a great taste without being overpowering. This will be our Thanksgiving sweet potato recipe from now on!
I didn't like it (and I'll eat almost anything) and neither did the rest of the family. At first it seemed like the brandy taste was way to strong. What the recipe fails to tell you is that you need to reduce the sauce for awhile until it turns to a soft caramel texture. I tasted the sauce after it was reduced and it was good so I still had hopes the recipe would turn out. But the sauce (in my opinion) it too strong even after reduction.
