In Cape May Court House, New Jersey, Nancy Zimmerman dresses up convenient canned sweet potatoes and apricot halves with brown sugar and cinnamon. "This fast-to-fix-side dish is delicious with a ham dinner," she relates.


  • 2 cans (15 ounces each) sweet potatoes
  • 1 can (15-1/4 ounces) apricot halves
  • 3 tablespoons brown sugar
  • 1 tablespoon cornstarch
  • 1/8 teaspoon ground cinnamon


  1. Drain sweet potatoes and apricots, reserving 1/2 cup syrup from each. If desired, cut apricots into fourths. Place potatoes and apricots in a greased 1-1/2-qt. baking dish. In a saucepan, combine brown sugar, cornstarch, cinnamon and reserved syrup; stir until smooth. Bring to a boil over medium-high heat. Remove from the heat; pour over potatoes and apricots. Bake, uncovered, at 350° for 25 minutes or until bubbly.
