Sweet Potato Pone-Sole Food

4 large sweet potatoes
1 cup butter, softened
1 cup firmly packed brown sugar
2 large eggs, well beaten
1/2 tsp. ground nutmeg
1/2 tsp. ground cinnamon
1/2 tsp. ground cloves
1/4 tsp. salt
1/2 cups half and half or undiluted evaporated milk
1 tsp. pure vanilla extract
1/2 cup molasses
Grated zest of 1/2 orange
Grated zest of 1/2 lemon

Preheat over to 300*F.

Peel sweet potatoes and grate them finely. Cream butter and brown sugar at medium speed on an electric mixer. Add beaten eggs to creamed mixture. Add grated potatoes, spices, salt, half & half and vanilla. Stir in molasses, grated orange, lemon zest. Beat together and pour into a well-buttered 13X9X2 in. oblong baking dish. This mixture should not be very thick but on the runny side. Bake for 1 hour or until set and thickened.

This is really good with a Pork roast and collard greens, corn bread muffins.
