Even the sweet potato/yam "dis-liker" (me) liked the flavor of these. Nice little bite from the cayenne. And the amount of sugar was just right. I don't care for really "sweet" yam dishes at all! Thanks for this addition to our holiday dinner. (Part of my "Thanksgiving 2010" Menu)

It's a very interesting recipe. On my test little bit too much paprika but other than that I love it.

Alright, I gave this a try and loved it. Ate all 4 halves!
