Succotash with Fresh Herbs & Smoked Meat

Succotash with Fresh Herbs & Smoked Meat by Amos Miller

Roasted Sweet Potatoes & Apples in Honey-Bourbon Sauce by Amos Miller

I am always looking for new ways to present the omnipresent sweet potato. This recipe is pure Southland, with it praliney, bourbon-touched, subtly-spiced luciousness.
