Our state produces a lot of oranges and raisins, which give this dish its unique flavor. The delicious sauce lifts sweet potatoes out of the ordinary.

"I saw this recipe in the magazine about 7-years ago and it has become a family favorite ever since. We even served it at our wedding 5-years ago. I use 1 cup orange juice concentrate (was an oops originally that turned out) and Craisins rather then raisins because hubby hates raisins. I also omit the walnuts because kids don't like them and nuts can be optional. At every holiday this replaces sweet potato bake and we never have leftovers. Even family who swear they don't like sweet potatoes love this dish. Thank you for sharing this recipe with our family."

"Pretty good. I added 1 tsp cinnamon and doubled the raisins. Wondering if it would be good with apple juice instead of orange; might try that next time."

"Really good and easy to make, as a short cut I used Schwans frozen Roasted Sweet Potatoes."
