Sweet Potato Cranberry Bake

Recipe by  

"My father's mother made this every year for our Thanksgiving dinner. It is not Thanksgiving to me without this dish. I do not like the tartness of most cranberry dishes, and sweet potatoes can be bland by themselves. This dish combines both to make a great all-in-one dish. When I take this dish to another person's home, I bake the first time and add the yams, cover, and then wait to heat until I am at their house."

  1. Preheat oven to 375 degrees F (190 degrees C).
  2. Combine cranberries, orange slices, sugar, pecans, orange juice, cinnamon, nutmeg, and mace in a 2-quart baking dish.
  3. Bake in preheated oven until cranberries soften, about 30 minutes. Stir yams into cranberry mixture and continue baking until heated through, about 15 minutes more.

Footnotes

  • Cook's Notes:
  • The orange peel should be left on. In addition to slicing the orange, I also cut the slices into wedges. It helps the peels to soften more and makes for a better size for a bite.
  • Brandy can be substituted for the orange juice.
  • Sugar and spices may be mixed together first before adding to the rest of the ingredients to help the spices to be spread more evenly.
  • Fresh boiled yams or sweet potatoes may be substituted for canned.
  • The cranberry mix can also be microwaved before adding the yams, instead of baking in the oven. I am not sure on the time as I have never personally cooked it this way.

This was absolutely delicious. I used fresh cubed sweet potatoes and baked for over an hour...added some extra orange juice (used the juice from one orange) and cut the sugar back to about 2/3 cup and it was still plenty sweet. Love it!!!
