"I removed the apples from the brown sugar and apple juice mixture after cooking and put them, along with the drained sweet potatoes into a baking dish. I then added an additional cup of apple juice to the juice mixture, along with a "roux" of apple juice and flour, brought it to a boil for one minute to thicken, then poured this mixture over the cooked sweet potatoes and apples. I covered the dish and placed it into a 350 oven for 15 minutes."

Preparation

The Cook & Kitchen Staff are offering you four different Thanksgiving Day Dinner menus during November, and were now in the middle of our third recipe collection, featuring our "Metropolitan Thanksgiving Day Dinner" fare. Todays recipe makes the most of your oven space because its prepared entirely on the stove-top. The Kitchen Staff recommends you use a very tart apple to complement the natural sweetness of the potatoes. The Granny Smith apple is the perfect fruit to use in todays recipe as it holds its shape well while cooking. Peel and slice fresh sweet potatoes. In a large saucepan, cover the potatoes with water and bring to a boil over high heat. Reduce the heat to medium and simmer, covered, for 8 to 10 minutes, or until potatoes are almost tender. Drain. Or forgo the first step and use canned sweet potatoes. Meanwhile, in a large skillet, combine the apple slices, brown sugar, apple juice, butter, allspice, and nutmeg. Bring the mixture to a boil over a moderate heat setting. Reduce the heat slightly and cook, uncovered, for 3 to 5 minutes or until apples are almost tender and the juice mixture is slightly thickened, stirring occasionally. Gently stir in the sweet potatoes. Cook, uncovered, for 5 to 10 minutes more, or until apples are tender and sweet potatoes are heated through, spooning the juice mixture over potatoes occasionally. Remove mixture to a serving dish and present warm. Posted to dailyrecipe@recipe-a-day.com by Recipe-a-Day on Nov 14, 1998, converted by MM_Buster v2.0l.
