Time-Saver
Looking for a shortcut? Use a 17- or 18-ounce can of vacuum-packed sweet potatoes, cut crosswise in half, for the fresh sweet potatoes.
Substitution
Use dried cherries or raisins instead of the cranberries.
Success
Follow cook times for pork carefully. Today's pork is lean and requires shorter cooking times. Overcooking pork will make it tough.
