Celebrating Modern Jewish Living Through Food, Tradition, and Family
The Backstory: Whenever I make this side dish, I am reminded of the Jewish holidays. In the early years of my life, my mom always had sweet potatoes as a side dish for every special occasion. Truth be told, the sweet potatoes mom used came out of a can. More of the Backstory after the recipe…
…The Backstory continues: I have used canned sweet potatoes, but I do prefer the fresh ones from the produce section of the supermarket. Of course, my adult children only remember the canned ones. Not true, but to keep the peace, I let them have their memories.
My gal friends always have a variation for these potatoes. A few phone calls always produce a variety of recipes. I love this one because it is a little different than the one I make in a baking dish. This is so sweet and luscious that I think that when I am done writing this, I am heading to the market to get the ingredients. Yes, I am buying the fresh sweet potatoes. Or maybe the cans to bring back a bit of my youth. Thanks, Mom.
