This simple recipe turns plain sweet potatoes into a wonderful holiday side dish. The raisins add a nice touch, and the sweet syrup makes the potatoes taste extra-special. -Ken Churches, Kailua-Kona, HI

"Was good, but much better with a little cinnamon sprinkled on it. I'll add that ingredient next time."
