Pineapple chunks add unexpected, yet delicious bursts of tartness to naturally sweet sweet potatoes. Add pecans, if you'd like, for another layer of flavor that people will love. —Paula Mayo, Feedings Hills, Massachusetts

"Over microwaved the potatoes, so I mashed it up, and used all crushed pineapple. I had to omit the pecans, I don't keep them in the house with the guys allergy, and it definitely would have given that extra OOMPH to the recipe. I used honey from my friend's hive in Maine, so good! Next time I'll cube up the potatoes and cook them in the oven."

"Swwet potatoes did not cook evenly even though I increased the time--a lot of sweet potatoes--may have worked better to parboil them."

"This was just ok, nothing special. One tip if you decide to try this: skip the microwave and boil the sweet potatoes instead. Even stirring frequently they didn't cook evenly in the microwave."

"I used canned sweet potatoes, no crushed pineapple and 20 oz. pineapple chunks. I also used brown sugar and a sprinkle of cinnamon. It turned out very well and we enjoyed it."

"This recipe is so simple. I prepared it according to the recipe, using locally 'grown' honey, and we LOVE it. It has become a MUST HAVE at Thanksgiving and Christmas dinners."
