Great recipe to start with and add to. We threw a cinnamon stick and some whole cloves into the cider while it boiled/simmered increased the cider and butter and skipped the pepper. We also used a high-quality cider - this may make a difference in the quality of flavor. Made an excellent if rich side dish. Read More

I did not care for this recipe. Our family loves sweet potatoes and also cider. Thought they would be very good together. Read More

Yummy!!! My 2 yr old and my 9 month old devoured them. I added a little extra butter and next time I may try a little brown sugar too. Read More

This really smells great while cooking. I added a pinch of cinnamon allspice and cloves and an extra tablespoon of butter. Delicious. Read More

Yummy! I do agree with sarah that a high-quality cider does make a difference and I did sprinkle a bit of a warm spice mix while the mixture simmered away as others had suggested. This was a great lower calorie way to prepare sweet potatoes. Thank you friday13th777 for sharing this recipe! Read More

While very good separately I'm not sure that the combination of the sweet potatoes and apple cider works well. Just OK. Read More

These make a lot more than 4 servings. I made 1 lb of sweet potatoes and that would serve 4 servings. I simmered the sweet potatoes in about 1/2 cup apple cider....on low it took at least 30 minutes. I did add a sprinkle of pumpkin pie spice. These are worth making again. Thanks. Read More

I cut the sweet potatoes pretty small, but after the 32 minutes of cooking time, with the lid on, the potatoes were still not cooked but the liquid was all used up, leaving the potatoes too hard to mash. Maybe I missed something. Sorry. Read More
