Thank you, Tina! I'm glad you enjoyed them. Just being curious but whereabouts in Yorkshire do you live? I have several good friends who live in the Pontefract area in West Yorkshire, and another who lives near Leeds.

We had never tried sweet potatoes before and tried them about a month ago..now we love them
They remind me of pumpkin
Haven't had a chance to cook them yet. Think I'll make some for lunch. Dying to find out if they taste different to white fleshed sweet potatoes.
I love pumpkin and sweet potato so they will be nice I'm sure

Chili Lime Sweet PotatoesSteve KrollNeither my wife nor I learned to like sweet potatoes until relatively late in life. Growing up, they were always served at family get togethers drowning in marshmallows, brown sugar, and maple syrup - more like a dessert than a side dish. That turned us off of them for years, until I started experimenting with more savory recipes.
This is hands down my favorite recipe for sweet potatoes. It's quick and easy and, best of all, there is nothing sweet about it. We have these at least once a month and there's usually a fight over who gets the last serving.
