Excellent recipe. Using slow cooker at holidays frees up oven space & your attention span, e.g., one less item to stir/worry about. Used canned sweet potatoes/yams, left out nuts, cut back on butter a little. Everyone enjoyed, even children. Have also made a few days ahead & either reheated in micro or bought to friends as a side dish. If anything, reheating a few days late enhances flavor. Orange juice gives a nice clean undertone flavor to a very simple, easy dish. Unless you're a purist or hate the taste of canned veggies, use the canned yams/potatoes. I've used fresh baked & canned. The slight difference the fresh baked makes is not worth the extra time,effort or trouble in my opinion & I'm a bit biased towards using fresh items.
