I kind of like the idea of being called ‘saucy and sweet’. Better than ‘cranky and bitter’.
Well these potatoes are neither cranky n or bitter.
It is a fabulous dish to have even if its summer and too hot to bake. Hubby picked out the apple bits at the end because he said it tasted like apple pie and, being gluten free, that was something he really didn’t have any more.
It’s so easy, you don’t really need a recipe per say.
All I used were a few sweet potatoes that I peeled, sliced and simmered in some water until tender. Drain, dice into chunks and set aside.
While they are simmering, take some apples, I happened to have granny smiths, and peel, core and slice them.
In a skillet, melt some butter or ghee and add the apples, sauteing until tender. Remove from pan and set aside in a bowl.
In the apple skillet, pour 1 cup of water, 1 handful of brown sugar (about 1/2 cup,give or take), and some cinnamon or other fun spices. I believe I used a cinnamon plus blend from PC. Simmer this until reduced a bit. Now take 1 TBSP of cornstarch and whisk it into a small bit of cool water in a cup or prep bowl until it is smooth, then pout it into the sugar water, stirring until the syrup thickened.
Put the sweet potatoes and apples into the serving dish and pour the sauce over it all and serve.
Optionally you can add toasted pecans or dried cranberries. how about some apricot jam in with the homemade syrup? There are many other things I am sure you can come up with.
Stay cool my friends!
