Personal Notes:
I know these sweet potatoes are one of Christy Hetherington's favorite holiday dishes. Nannie always used sweet potatoes for these, never yams!
She also baked them in an old Westinghouse electric oven in her "service porch". The long slow cooking really candied these potatoes. They were a traditional holiday accompaniment!
