    The cardamom is a little overpowering, I will cut back on it the next time, but I will make it again.

    Yummy! Can actually use less sugar than called for, though.

    These are the best sweet potatoes I have ever had. Easy to prepare and cook along with everything else; not really over sweet!

    Not quite as good as my sister-in-law's, but still had a good flavor.
