A new Holiday Favorite! The whole family loved them. I did make some modifications to the recipe, made it gluten free and I cooked in a slow cooker, not backed. I used and even mix of fresh yams and sweet potatoes (did not cook first). I read multiple reviews and some people suggesting increasing the brown sugar mix, I do not suggest this, it was plenty sweet for us. I used fresh cranberries instead of raisins. Once the water and brown sugar were mixed, I added 3/4 - 1 cup of cranberries to the mix so that they had time to simmer with the mixture. Instead of adding flour, I added cornstarch (use 1/2 the amount suggested for flour). One of the good suggestions from another review was to add the apples later, the potatoes take longer to cook. I left the potatoes and mixture in the cooker for about 2-1/2 hours on high, mixing/folding about ever 45 minutes to make sure all was cooking evenly. then added the apples and lemon. (which by the way, I did not peal the apples. Our apples were small right now, so I added more than suggested). Using the slow cooker was nice because it did not take up additional, very precious, oven space. I hope you and your family enjoy this as much as mine have.
