HI Jason, I enjoy you so much on television, you are a hoot!

I am going to make this sweet potato dessert later today. I know it will be awesome but I’ll let you know.

I understand this request is not in the Great Southern tradition please, could you experiment with “other” sugars? Stevia is not artificial could you maybe in footnotes or ? make a alternate recipe using this product or a different product, please. As a older person, not old, lol I need less sugar in my foods.

There is a lot of info out there the damage sugar causes to my generation. I will not give up every sugary food I love but you could really help…
