Sweet potatoes are usually a holiday favorite and this recipe will not disappoint.  The freshness of the orange juice and lemon zest give a fresh twist. Sweet potatoes are naturally high in fiber, so it is a recommended food for diverticulosis.

    I have not made this dish because the directions say both sugar with the flour and there is only brown sugar listed in the recipe that I read.

    A very tasty side dish that complimented the roasted chicken I made for the family. Everyone loved it.

    Amended the order of the recipe. Mix all dry ingredients. Warm up the orange juice and honey so the honey blends into the liquid. Add vanilla. Pour over parboil potatoes.
