Glazed Sweet Potatoes, Apples & Georgia Pecans

  • Yields 12 Servings


    • 6 medium sweet potatoes, peeled and cut crosswise into 3/4-inch slices
    • 1 teaspoon salt
    • 2 medium apples, peeled, cored and sliced 1/4-inch thick
    • 4 tablespoons butter
    • 1/4 teaspoon ground nutmeg
    • 1/2 cup maple syrup
    • 1/2 cup apple cider
    • 1/2 cup chopped Georgia pecans
    • Nonstick cooking spray


Preheat the oven to 400 degrees F.

Bring 3 quarts of water to a boil in a large saucepan and add sweet potatoes and salt. Boil slices for 6 – 7 minutes, or until just tender. Remove sweet potatoes from the heat and with a slotted spoon transfer them to a 13″ x 9″ baking dish coated with nonstick cooking spray. Add apple slices and stir to combine.

In a small saucepan, combine butter, nutmeg, maple syrup and apple cider over medium heat. Stir and bring just to a boil, then remove from heat. Pour over sweet potato mixture and scatter with pecans.

Place in oven and bake 25 – 30 minutes, or until glaze thickens, sweet potatoes and apples are tender, and pecans turn light brown.
