Black people have been eating sweet potato pies for decades. The meal for Thanksgiving and Christmas is not complete without two sweet potatoes pies on the table.
How about baking the potatoes instead of boiling them
Hhhuuuummmmm. This is what is considered the best?
No Boo. Black people all over America make sweet potato pies. Never use all spice. Bake your potatoes..boiling them takes away a lot of the flavor.
I read the previous comments. I laughed. Because WE do know sweet potatoe pies. And people of all races make them differently. I do not use pumpkin spice because it’s gross and it’s a sweet potato pie not pumpkin. But you know to each his own. It may be the best to her and her family. And that’s ok. I do like to use condensed milk brown sugar nutmeg and vanilla in mines plus the other few basic ingredients. But I had to comment. Everyone has their own best. God bless all..
