    SILOAM SPRINGS, Ark., Oct. 29 /PRNewswire/ -- Maintaining your poise
 during the holiday season is often a balancing act. You want traditional
 dishes like sweet potato pie, but it takes time to make them -- time that
 could otherwise be spent with your family.
     If you feel the stress of the kitchen-to-family balancing act, relax and
 let the solution out of the can. Dishes made with canned sweet potatoes like
 Princella or Sugary Sam leave you worry free because they score big on
 convenience, taste, and nutrition.
     Fresh sweet potatoes need to be cleaned, cooked, and peeled before adding
 to any recipe. In contrast, canned sweet potatoes are recipe ready right from
 the can. Open, drain, add to your favorite recipe, and enjoy the extra time
 with your loved ones.
     And put yourself at ease. Whether you're making a traditional holiday
 recipe or a year-round favorite, canned sweet potatoes give you the quality
 you deserve. Studies show that recipes made using canned vegetables like
 Princella or Sugary Sam Sweet Potatoes are comparable in taste and nutrition
 to recipes made with fresh.
     So maybe it's time to change your traditions. Try our sweet potato pie
 recipe and enjoy a traditional dish with your family. Or visit
