Story Behind this Recipe
I received a ton of sweet potatoes as a gift, so I made my sister's favorite sweet potato snacks! I tried to recreate my mother's dish.
Use sweet potatoes that aren't too moist! Don't over steam, if they become moist they will be too watery. Adjust the amount of sugar depending on the sweetness of the potatoes. Using egg yolk really brings out a beautiful color in the sweet potato!
