Forget the brown sugar and gooey marshmallows. This is the way to give sweet potatoes the respect they deserve. Serve with chilled cooked shrimp, chunks of crusty Italian bread and assorted crudities for dipping.Unknown source

  4. Whisk in 1/2 cup of the crème fraiche and the lime juice. If mixture is too thick, whisk in a little additional broth or water. Season wit salt to taste.Cook over medium low heat til heated through, about 5 minutes
  5. Transfer to a ceramic or enameled cast iron fondue pot. Drizzle remaining 1 1/2 Tbsp. crème fraiche on top and sprinkle with the cilantro. Regulate heat under pot, if possible so that fondue remains warm, not hot.
