Diyeana

"My Grandma shared this recipe with me and it's been a favorite of mine every year at Thanksgiving. It's by far better than any other yam side dish I've had. (I don't like yams and marshmallows.)"

  • Ready In

  1. Preheat an oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C).
  2. Place the sweet potatoes into a large pot and cover with salted water. Bring to a boil over high heat; reduce heat to medium-low, cover, and simmer until just tender, 15 to 20 minutes. Drain and allow to steam dry for a minute or two. Peel and cut into 1/2-inch slices; layer the sweet potatoes and apples into a 9x13-inch baking dish.
  3. Meanwhile, stir together the sugar, cornstarch, salt, cinnamon, and nutmeg in a saucepan. Stir in the water and butter and bring to a simmer over medium heat. Cook and stir until thickened and no longer cloudy, 5 to 10 minutes. Pour over the sweet potatoes.
  4. Bake in the preheated oven until the apples are very tender and the sweet potatoes are golden on top, about 1 hour.

Served this for Thanksgiving, family loved it. Only used 1 cup of sugar as the apples & potatoes are sweet enough. Will definitely make again.

Made this for Thanksgiving, I usually use peaches but the apples really gave it a new flavor. Everyone loved it!

This recipe will replace our sweet yams at all holiday dinners. They were sweet, tender and delicious.

Great recipe. People please read the instructions carefully its says 1 1/4 teaspoons not cups. I did add some vanilla and a little more butter.

This is absolutely delicious and tastes like autumn.

This didn't turn out well at all. The sauce was gelatinous and had a strange texture.

REREAD the recipes it's 1 1/4 TEASPOONS NOT CUPS 1 1/4 CUPS of SUGAR=^..^= and I like Granny smith apples and some Brandy
