Reviews for Cranberry-Walnut Sweet Potatoes
"The cranberry mixture is delicious, but I thought that it overwhelmed the taste of the sweet potato. Maybe I'm a sweet potato purist. I like the cranberry mixture as a condiment for grilled chicken, instead."
"It's way too tart for my taste. I added lots of brown sugar before serving."
"Made this Christmas 2009, and I am pretty sure this will be a traditional dish at my house for Christmas every year. Its delicious!"
