Golden, Texas has a Sweet Potato Festival each fall and that is where we get our sweet potatoes. They are always fresh and delicious and so much better than what you find in the stores. This recipe has been perfected by my mother.

"Delicious! My in-laws loved it on thanksgiving (and they are brits unfamiliar with sweet potatoes)."
