Sweet Potato Delight

“My family wouldn’t dream of a Thanksgiving dinner without this side dish, but it’s great anytime—I serve it once a month.” The fluffy texture and subtle orange flavor make it a standout. —Marlene Kroll, Chicago, Illinois

    This was way too sweet for my family and I. I doubt I would ever make this recipe again but if I did I would decrease the marmalade, extract and OJ by at least half.
