To save time in the kitchen around the holidays, cook, peel and refrigerate the sweet potatoes a day in advance. The next day, complete the recipe as directed.

Sweet potatoes are one of those southern vegetables that we can't live without. Like okra, turnip greens, mustard greens and corn, Louisiana is big on the Sweet Potato.

This is a different take on your normal "candied" yams. Enjoy!
