everyone LOVED the orange flavor given by the cups; the 2 3/4 pound is equal to about 5 cups mashed and barely fit into 10 orange halves; I still had remaining sweet potatoe left over so I may decrease the amount of potato next time; also, I increased the cinnamon to 1/2 tsp. and it was a true hit. I also did the potatoes a day ahead as suggested and they assembled very well.
Very tasty and nice presentation. The orange shell gives a taste of orange to the sweet potato mixture. Went very nicely with cornish hens, stuffing and stringbeans...sort of a mini- Thanksgiving!
