Top your steamed pudding with the caramel sauce and it's complete.
Story Behind this Recipe
I used 100 g of the sweet potato my husband grew in the garden, but I still have plenty left.
Please adjust the amount of sugar used depending on the sweetness of the sweet potato. Our sweet potatoes aren't that sweet. It's a bit sad... Be careful not to burn yourself when making the caramel sauce.
