Fresh root ginger makes a difference. - 24 Jul 2008


Using honey is a great idea for sweet potatoes and we liked that. The only problem was the cardamom and ginger were a little overwhelming. The kids did not like it. In the future we would omit the cardamom and go easier on the ginger. - 24 Jul 2008


I think the key to this recipe is knowing your own tastes. (After reading the reviews) I used maybe 1 T. ginger and 1/2 t cardamom. It was very tasty but I expected there to be a bit more caramelisation. Everyone liked it and it was not sickly sweet. - 24 Jul 2008
