A good substitute for candied sweet potatoes. Be very careful when you are peeling or cutting a rutabaga. They are a beast to handle.

Excellent idea! I would like to suggest trying Just Like Sugar Brown. I've used it in other recipes and I like the flavor and results better than using sucralose. I also have Capella flavor drops in Marshmallow flavor and I'm going to try adding a few drops of that to see if I can get an authentic Candied Yam flavor in this dish. I also use sugar-free syrups and I have Torani Brown Sugar Cinnamon and DaVinci Toasted Marshmallow so that's another option to try in this recipe. Thanks for being so creative and for posting this recipe!
