sweet potatoes, peeled and cubed
grated fresh ginger
ground black pepper
I sprang for the walnut oil but substituted 2 tbsp. ground ginger for the fresh, and 1/2 tsp. ground cinnamon, 1/4 tsp. ground cloves, and 1/4 tsp. ground alspice for the cardamom. Potatoes stayed moist and were a nice compliment to the turkey. Everybody liked them.
I made this for Thanksgiving. It was way too much ginger. Cardamon has such a wonderful flavor; I felt the ginger completely over powered the taste of anything else. I'll cut the ginger down next time, and it will be great!
This was a great recipe that I made for a dinner party, word of caution: cut the ginger in half at least! The ginger is potent and too strong, but if you cut back on it, it works! I would make this again.
Great recipe! Really simple and easy to make. I substitute vegetable oil for the walnut oil since I never have any on hand and it turns out scrumptious.
My husband doesn't like Sweet Potatoes but he loves this recipe. I tripled this recipe for a family gathering and the potatoes were gone with in fifteen minutes. They are still raving about them. Cardamon makes anything great. Oh! I ran out of honey and substituted brown sugar and it still worked.
I screwed up this recipe because I added all of the spices and ingredients to my pot of apples instead of the sweet potatoes. I had gotten my two recipes mixed up and looked at the wrong printout (I was in between soccer games and totally rushed for time). Anyway, I ended up mixing the apples with the sweet potatoes (used a small can). Results were outstanding. Even though I messed up everything, it all turned out just great. Served with the pork tenderloin with bourbon.
I was looking for a low fat way to serve sweet potatoes and I found this recipe. WOW! You won't believe the delicious flavor. Just one thing - it took much longer to cook than it says in the recipe - about an hour (but worth the wait).
I did modify the recipe somewhat - sliced, instead of cubing, the potatoes (1/4" - 1/2"); used ground ginger and omitted the cardamom (none on hand) - and they still came out TERRIFIC! Easiest "candied sweet potato" recipe I've ever made! "Mama Mary"
