A neighbor just gave us a bag of fresh sweet potatoes from North Carolina. They are so good and I normally bake them. I agree that baking definitely brings out the sweetness. Looking forward to making the pie. Thanks for the tips.

As you mix your batter, lift your wisk and pull off and discard the strings from the potatoes. This will give you a much smoother pie.

try roasting the sweet potatoes instead of boiling them, I get a better tasting pie that way...see what you think next time you make one.
