So he put some of those bad boys in a cheesecloth, squeezed really hard, and wound up with enough orange-hued liquid to reduce in a saucepan until it was the thick, creamy texture and deep color of caramel. And damn, it’s good—eaten straight with a spoon (as we first experienced it) or, as Brad suggests, atop roast pork. “I like that it retains the earthy flavor of the sweet potato,” he says.
