Cinnamon Apple Sweet Potatoes

Recipe by  

"My Grandma shared this recipe with me and it's been a favorite of mine every year at Thanksgiving. It's by far better than any other yam side dish I've had. (I don't like yams and marshmallows.)"

Original recipe makes 1 - 9x13-inch baking dish Change Servings

Directions

  1. Preheat an oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C).
  2. Place the sweet potatoes into a large pot and cover with salted water. Bring to a boil over high heat; reduce heat to medium-low, cover, and simmer until just tender, 15 to 20 minutes. Drain and allow to steam dry for a minute or two. Peel and cut into 1/2-inch slices; layer the sweet potatoes and apples into a 9x13-inch baking dish.
  3. Meanwhile, stir together the sugar, cornstarch, salt, cinnamon, and nutmeg in a saucepan. Stir in the water and butter and bring to a simmer over medium heat. Cook and stir until thickened and no longer cloudy, 5 to 10 minutes. Pour over the sweet potatoes.
  4. Bake in the preheated oven until the apples are very tender and the sweet potatoes are golden on top, about 1 hour.

This was a great recipe! I made it for Thanksgiving dinner and everyone loved it! It did take a bit longer than an hour for everything to be nice and tender, but I just covered it with foil and let it sit in the oven while other things were being finished.

I also followed the recipe and used 1 1/4 cups of salt even though it sounded like it was going to be awful... It was awful and ended up throwing the whole batch away. Now I see the recipe was updated to 1 1/4 teaspoons of salt... I can see that being much better.

Served this for Thanksgiving, family loved it. Only used 1 cup of sugar as the apples & potatoes are sweet enough. Will definitely make again.

This recipe will replace our sweet yams at all holiday dinners. They were sweet, tender and delicious.

This didn't turn out well at all. The sauce was gelatinous and had a strange texture.
