Apple Sweet Potato Side Recipe

Apple Sweet Potato Side Recipe

Mother never used a recipe, so for years, there were no written instructions to make this dish. When the memories of this Thanksgiving side dish began to haunt me, I set out to duplicate this comfort food, which took me many tries. It bakes in the oven with other foods, needing little attention. -Opal Sanders, Glouster, Ohio

  • 5 medium sweet potatoes (2-1/2 pounds)
