Cider-Glazed Sweet Potatoes with Cranberries

Prep Time: 15 mins.
Cook Time: 30 mins.
(Total time will vary with appliance and setting.)
Level of Difficulty: Medium


2 large sweet potatoes, peeled and cut into 1-inch chunks

1 1/2 cups apple cider or apple juice

1/4 cup packed brown sugar

2 Tbsp butter or tub margarine

1/2 tsp nutmeg

1/2 tsp ground allspice

1/2 cup dried unsweetened cranberries


Peel and cut the sweet potatoes into 2-inch cubes.

Steam them in a steamer basket or cover them in a pot with 1/4 cup of water.  Steam the potatoes for 10 - 15 mins. or until the cubes are tender.  If desired, you can also steam them in the microwave.

Set the potatoes aside in a large bowl.

Combine the cider, sugar, butter, nutmeg, and allspice in a large non-stick skillet over medium-high heat.  Bring the mixture to a boil, stirring often.

Add the potatoes, reduce the heat so the liquid is simmering and cook for 5 mins., stirring occasionally.

Add the cranberries and continue cooking until the liquid is reduced to a syrupy glaze and the potatoes are tender, about 10 mins.

If the glaze becomes very thick before the potatoes become tender, thing it with a small amount of cider.

When the potatoes are tender, transfer them to a serving bowl with a slotted spoon.

Pour the remaining glaze over the sweet potatoes and serve.
