Wanted to try a new sweet potato dish. My family really liked this besides the pineapple. We aren't pineapple fans so that could be part of it. Next time I will leave them out. These is super pretty with the cranberries.

I personally dislike sweet potatoes (gross!), but I made it at Thanksgiving and all the other people said that it's really good.

THIS WAS WONDERFUL BUT I DID ADD A FEW MORE CRANBERRYS, THE BURST OF FLAVOR WHEN YOU TOOK A BITE WAS GREAT.

This recipe is really delicious! I omitted the pineapple juice and just used the crushed pineapple, and I thought it was the perfect balance. You could taste the flavor of the potatoes, orange juice, and pineapple, without any of them being too overpowering. I will definitely use this recipe again.

I am diabetic and this recipe was perfect for me. Mildly sweet without a ton of sugar! Love that the ingredients are simple and fresh!
