Baked Sweet Potatoes with Brown Sugar and Black Pepper
SAVEUR associate food editor Ben Mims loves brown sugar and black pepper together: the pepper provides a pleasant heat, and the sugar brings out the spice's latent sweetness. On a rich and earthy baked potato, the combination is a natural. This recipe appeared in our November 2011 issue, with the story Superb Sides.
