    I cannot get anyone here besides me to eat sweet potatoes. I wonder if a recipe like this, they may try it. Hmmm, think I’ll give it a shot. Sounds so good and if they don’t eat it, well, I know I will.

    My daughter hates sweet potatoes. So she says… I made this and she gobbled it up. Thanks for all these wonderful recipes we love them.

  3. Stephanie says:

    I tried this recipe a couple of times and everyone in my family loved it except for me. BLECH. All I can say is that recipes with apple cider vinegar as an ingredient are very strange…apple cider vinegar is one of those weird things that you either love or you hate. it’s just not for me.

  6. Sounds like a nice recipe. I am impressed with your organization in a bag frozen and ready to go. Nice unique spices too. Thanks for sharing.

    I made this recipe twice and it was really good. Making it now for the third time and the smell of the spices coming from the crockpot is wonderful. Thank you for the recipes….it has saved so much time and money for my family.

  10. This recipe is delish! It went into my recipe box! Next time I make it, I’m going to try using half the amount of preserves to cut back on the sweetness. What a great dish! Thank you! Marilee

    Okay we did it. I have to say my daughter didn’t like how sweet it tasted. We used Smucker’s Apricot Preserves. What did you use–maybe apricot preserves are sweeter than peaches?

    I think I might try to cut back on the preserves next time we make it. I liked how easy it was to put together, but just needing it to not be as sweet.

    Has anyone cut back and try this recipe again?
