Sweet & Sour Sweet Potatoes
4 sweet potatoes, ½ ” cubes
1 large apple, diced
1 c raw cranberries
½ c raisins
Apple Juice concentrate, as needed, about ½ cup*
You have your choice of three preparation methods (I've done all three!)
Cover and bake in oiled dish 350 degrees F, 1 hour 15 minutes, till potatoes are tender, OR
Microwave till done, about 15-20 minutes, stirring occasionally OR
Cook in Slow Cooker or Crock Pot for 2 hours, till potatoes are tender.Some Broken Walnuts make a nice garnish, if you like.
*If the dish finishes, and the sweetness and moisture level are insufficient, a little more juice concentrate may be added at that point.
|I'm clumsy, and Sweet Potatoes are hard - and harder to peel than white potatoes.|
To make it easier, I cut the potato in half to keep it steady on the cutting board.
|Then, I hold the potato ABOVE the knife, and slice downward around|

BTW - learned the hard way, the garbage disposal does NOT like Sweet Potato skins : (
