Sweet Potato Pie 101

I learned the hard way — more than once — that it’s best to connect with an expert when trying a recipe that’s clearly outside of one’s wheelhouse. Sweet potato pie is a perfect example. I’d never heard of it until I was in my 30s and — while my enthusiasm level was high — my technique was off.

That first pie was such a stringy disappointment I didn’t try again until interviewing two experts earlier this month. (They are pictured the right.)

The pie in the above photo is my own — but it was prepared with techniques and a basic recipe the Nevels family of West Virginia has perfected over generations.

This time, every bite of that pie said Happy Thanksgiving! As do I, to you. Be blessed!
