Looking for a tasty sweet potatoes recipe? Then check out this great slow-cooked side dish served with applesauce perfect of Thanksgiving.

6
medium sweet potatoes or yams (2 pounds), peeled and cut into 1/2-inch cubes
1 1/2
cups applesauce
2/3
cup packed brown sugar
3
tablespoons margarine or butter, melted
1
teaspoon ground cinnamon
1/2
cup chopped nuts, toasted

Directions

  • 1 Place sweet potatoes in 2- to 3 1/2-quart slow cooker. Mix remaining ingredients except nuts; spoon over potatoes.
  • 2 Cover and cook on low heat setting 6 to 8 hours or until potatoes are very tender.

Tips  

Many varieties of sweet potatoes are available, but a true yam is not available in our supermarkets. The variety of sweet potatoes with dark orange skin is often labeled as "yams." The very light-colored sweet potatoes are not as sweet and are drier than the darker-skin ones. We like the darker-skin sweet potatoes (or "yams")for this dish because they not only make a richer colored dish but also a tastier, sweeter one.

While the turkey roasts in the oven, cook this Thanksgiving favorite in the cooker. If your home is this year's holiday gathering spot for family and friends, you can double or triple this recipe and cook it in a 5- to 6-quart cooker. And it will stay warm for second helpings.
