I have made this recipe for Cranberry Walnut Sweet Potatoes and they are really good. What a good
side dish for Thanksgiving or Christmas I added a small amount of orange juice. Thanks and have a wonderful day.
Cranberry-Walnut Sweet Potatoes
From Light & Tasty
4 large sweet potatoes
1/4 cup finely chopped onion
1 tablespoon butter
1 cup fresh or frozen cranberries
1/3 cup maple syrup
1/4 cup water
1/4 cup cranberry juice
1/4 teaspoon salt, divided
1/2 cup chopped walnuts, toasted
1 teaspoon Dijon mustard
1/4 teaspoon pepper
2 tablespoons minced chives
Scrub and pierce sweet potatoes. Bake at 400° for 1 hour or until tender.
In a small saucepan, saute onion in butter until tender. Add the cranberries, syrup, water, cranberry juice and 1/8 teaspoon salt. Bring to a boil. Reduce heat; cover and simmer for 10-15 minutes or until berries pop, stirring occasionally. Stir in walnuts and mustard; heat through.
Cut potatoes in half lengthwise; sprinkle with pepper and remaining salt. Top each with 2 tablespoons cranberry mixture; sprinkle with chives. Yield: 8 servings.
