While the syrup is boiling, prepare the topping. Add all the topping ingredients to a medium size bowl and mix together well. I find using my hands the easiest for this job.
¼ cup butter, 1 ½ cups pecans, ½ cup almond flour, 1 teaspoon each: cinnamon, sage, vanilla
Place the sweet potato ribbons in a large bowl. When the syrup has reduced to a ½ cup, let it cool slightly then pour it over the ribbons. Toss gently to coat well.

Place the sweet potato ribbons in the greased casserole dish and cover the top with the pecan topping. Bake in the preheated oven for 30-35 minutes, or until the ribbons are soft and the pecans have toasted.
Serve with a little parsley on top, if you'd like.
Save a cup of coffee from your morning pot to save you having to make one.If presentation is important to you, take a few of the sweet potato ribbons and wind them around the pecan topping. It's pretty!
