This looks good.  I was afraid it would suggest raw sweet potatoes and bran.

Oh, I see, it's the Bourbon that makes it healthy!

We didn't add Bourbon because of  alcohol.  The sugar in it isn't healthy, but the potatoes and apples with lemond juice makes its a little bit better. But hey, its sweet potatoes!
