Okay, so i posted my "replica" of this go to green box. If you mssed the thread, I boiled sweet potatoes, then added various amounts of brown sugar, white sugar, maple syrup, salt and pepper, and LOTS of butter. While I can't give yo exact amounts as I did it more by the color than the tast( I don't care for these and I think I was killing the bottle of wine I used for another sauce).
Dad was VERY PLEASED!!!! Said they didn't have "that certain taste" (you know, the cardboard box taste), however, actually called them delicious!
THANKS TO ALL WHO INSPIRED ME!!!!!
