Super Delicious Sweet Potatoes

Here's a new recipe I tried this Thanksgiving. If you like sweet potatoes, I suggest giving this a try.

Smushed Apples and Sweet Potatoes


* 2 large sweet potatoes, peeled and diced
* 2 tablespoons butter
* 1/4 cup white sugar (I used brown sugar)
* 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
* 1/2 teaspoon ground allspice
* 1 Granny Smith apple - peeled, cored and sliced (I used a HoneyCrisp, because it was all I had)
* 1/8 cup milk


1. Place the sweet potato in a medium saucepan and fill with enough water to cover the potatoes. Bring to a boil, reduce heat to medium, and simmer for about 20 minutes or until tender. Remove from heat, drain and set aside.
2. Melt butter over low heat in a small saucepan. Mix in the sugar, cinnamon and allspice. Add the apple slices, cover, and let simmer for 5 minutes, or until the apples are tender. Mix the apple mixture into the drained sweet potatoes along with the milk. Mix well using an electric mixer or just a fork until potatoes are mashed.
