  1. would you know the temperature to achieve while cooking the sugar so it coats the banana or kamote all over? Since from the picture of the banana que partly are covered with the brown sugar.. thanks

  2. I just sprinkle the sugar while it is boiling, when it starts to melt and coats the kamote or banana sprinkle more sugar then remove from the frying pan.
