On a side note...  
I have been getting numerous emails about the Southern Sweet Potato Salad recipe that we served at the Heritage Holiday Faire evening soiree.  


Here it is:

Everyone loves and is surprised by this sweet and tangy salad.  It makes a lovely presentation and keeps for several days.  Double this recipe for your next gathering.

2 lbs sweet potatoes, peeled and cut into 1/2 cubes
2 Tbsp lemon juice
1 Cup mayo
2 Tbsp orange juice
1 Tbsp honey
1 Tsp. grated orange peel
1/2 Tsp. ground fresh ginger
1/4 Tsp. salt
1/8 Tsp. ground nutmeg
1 Tsp. cumin
1 cup chopped celery
1/2 cup craisens
1/2 cup pecans
1/2 cup red onion
1 can (11 oz) Mandarin oranges drained

In a medium saucepan cook sweet potatoes in boiling salted water just until tender, about 5-8 minutes (DO NOT OVERCOOK).  Drain; toss with the lemon juice.  In a large bowl combine mayo, orange juice, honey, orange peel, ginger, salt, nutmeg, and cumin.  Add the warm potatoes, celery, onions, and  craisens.  Toss to evenly coat dressing on the potatoes.  Gently toss the oranges and pecans in the mixture. Cover and chill.  It is now ready to serve.
