    It was too spicy! A relatives made it w/o cayenne and it was better. Next time I won't use cayenne. I tossed it out.

    Loved it, the cayenne pepper gives it a kick not found in traditional Thanksgiving sides.

    I stupidly added a little nutmeg. don't do that. haha. I didn't care too much for this, but my hubby LOVED it. I also used the seeds and roasted them with some olive oil, ground red pepper, lots of salt and some worcestershire sauce. DELISH. don't waste 'em!
