This is definitely my favorite way to serve sweet potatoes at thanksgiving. The sweet and tart mix is a perfect compliment to the usual thanksgiving fare.
I found this dish while looking through some old recipe books. I don't even remember which book it was, but i've made it for 2 years running for thanksgiving dinner, and it always gets great reviews. :)
