“This puts my sweet potato crop to delicious use. I've substituted butternut squash for the sweet potatoes with equally yummy results." Undertones of apple make this mildly sweet, creamy dish stand out. Kathy Rairigh - Milford, Indiana

"I also added some leftover canned pumpkin I had (about 1/2 can). I forgot to mention that in the review below!"

"Made this the first time and it was good, but I didn't love it. I didn't like how much the apricot flavor permeated the whole recipe. The 2nd time around, I used 1 lg sweet potato, 1lb parsnips, 1 lb carrots, and 1 small onion. Then, I forgot to reduce the cider, so I subbed with 1/4 cup apple butter. I also sprinkled some nutmeg into the whole mixture before I pureed. I liked it A LOT with the substitutions. I imagine you could sub in other things too- so it's a good recipe in my book!"
