Moroccan Sweet-Potato Raisin Salad
----------------------------------
4        Sweet Potatoes; Washed, peeled and cut into 1/4" cubes
2 tsp    Salt
1/2 tsp  Fresh Ginger, grated
1 tsp    Ground Cinnamon
1/4 tsp  Nutmeg
1/8 tsp  Ground Cloves
1/2 tsp  Chili Powder (optional)
1/2      Lemon, juiced
1/2 tsp  Lemon Zest
1/4 cup  Raisins
1 Tbsp   Olive Oil

Prepare sweet potatoes by washing well and cubing. Place potatoes in a
medium saucepan. Cover potatoes with water, about three cups or more if
needed; add 1 1/2 teaspoons salt. Bring to a boil, reduce heat, and simmer
until potatoes are just tender and water is reduced by more than half. Add
ginger, cinnamon, nutmeg, cloves, chili powder, lemon juice, lemon zest,
raisins and olive oil to boiling water. Stir well and allow liquid to
thicken. Pour mixture into a serving bowl and serve hot.
