Maple Sweet Potatoes

"Maple syrup gives these sweet potatoes a nice caramelized taste. When I was growing up, I thought of sweet potatoes as overly sweet. Then I started playing around with them in recipes and discovered how much I liked them and how good they are for you. Now I eat them often." --CL Reader
