The Recipe: Maple sweet Potato Casserole
Tips and what you will need: Did you know sweet potatoes are often mislabeled as yams? If you see an orange ‘yam’ on the grocery shelf, it’s really a sweet potato. For more information see link at bottom of post. To make this casserole you will need a stock pot, a mixer, 4 – 12 ounce ramekins or a baking dish and vanilla paste. I buy the quart, it’s a money saver! If you are living gluten free, use your favorite GF flour.
