Do you need to use applesauce and apple cider vinegar in this recipe to get it to turn out right, or can you just use one or the other in the dish? I like that you chose sweet potatoes instead of white potatoes. I want to try them in a dish to see how they taste, so I think this is the one I will use to figure it out and see if I like them or not.
