This was printed in Favorite Recipes by Borden in 1987. I have been using this recipe every year at Thanksgiving and Christmas since then with a couple of twists. I am updating this recipe based upon CountryLady's review. I made this recipe using fresh sweet potatoes and it is so much better. I am leaving the canned as an option. Both ways are good.
