Lemon juice is what makes L. Bruce Massey's sweet potato pie taste more like sweet potato. "It neutralizes the flavors," Massey explained to The Herald-Mail from his kitchen table, over a slice of pie. In Massey's recipe, the clove, nutmeg and cinnamon triumvirate is not required, though a tablespoon of cinnamon is optional. He specifies orange sweet potatoes - Georgia jets or red jewel. Never use canned. And yes, there's lemon juice. The effect is a light, creamy pie with a clean taste of sweet potato.
