LIght n Fluffy Sweet Potatoes

Tari Harlan


Five years ago my father gave me my grandmothers recipe box. It's an old tin coffee can. I remember it sitting up on a shelf just out of my reach, while I was growing up. My heart thrilled as I read recipes in her hand writing, and then I came across this one. It's light and fluffy sweet potatoes, without being too sweet. She used to serve it every Thanksgiving and Christmas, until she passed away in '87. For 20 years, we didn't have this wonderful side dish, until I suprised the family with it five years ago. Now it's like having a hug from Mamaw every holiday!!
