I was lucky enough to find sweet onions (Maui's) when I last shopped. I enjoyed this as a welcome change from the usual holiday sweet potato dishes. Splenda Brown Sugar was used in place of the regular brown and I used double the cinnamon and ginger. It all came together with a lovely layering of flavor intensity, the sweet, the savory and and a tiny nip of heat.
We made this for Thanksgiving, substituting dried cranberries (sweetened) for the raisins. I was outstanding, the perfect accompaniment for the Holiday's flavors!
This recipe is great. I substituted the 2 cups water with 1 cup orange juice 1 cup water. It adds a little zest.
This was a very very good out of the ordinary sweet potato casserole. I really enjoyed having it with my Thanksgiving meal, as it helped ease up on the sugar overload I usually get. Thanks for posting, Toni! Made for the Potluck Tag Game.
I was less than impressed with this as a side dish. I didn't enjoy the combination of flavours. However, I froze the leftovers and when I found a recipe for Risky Biscuits by Janet & Greta Podleski from Eat, Shrink & Be Merry, I used this in place of the mashed sweet potatoes and cinnamon. Made an awesome base for the biscuits.
Very good Toni we really enjoyed this sweet potato dish, I omitted the raisins as it was sweet enough and used regular yellow onions in place of sweet onions, I also added in some fresh garlic when sauteeing the onions and increased the cayenne, thanks for sharing hon!...Kitten:)
I myself find that these are sweet enough that we don`t need to add all that white stuff! :) I enjoyed these with all the spices called for and used 2 1/2 pounds of potatoes. When potatoes were tender I removed them and cooked down the liquid and then poured it over just before serving! Thanks!
Thanks toni for another great recipe. We enjoyed this sweet potato dish very much. The potatoes were perfectly cooked, tender morsels nestled in sweet onions, flavourful spices and plump sweet raisins with a lovely hint of heat. The cayenne pepper makes them extra special.
