  • Yum! Didn't have enough sweet

    Yum! Didn't have enough sweet potato, so added white sweet potato & carrots, so had to cook for a little longer. Didn't add quite as much water as it wouldn't fit in thermy bowl. Family all agreed it was delish!! ( we are fans of star anise!) You didn't mention how to make ginger cream, though. I've saved this recipe to my faves- thanks!
