1/4 cup apple cider
2 tablespoons dark molasses
1 tablespoon dark rum
1 teaspoon fresh minced chile pepper
1/8 teaspoon cinnamon
1/8 teaspoon nutmeg
2 tablespoons butter
4 sweet potatoes, peeled and cut into 1/2-inch squares
2 tart apples, peeled, cored and cut into 1/4-inch squares
1/2 tsp. salt
1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Combine first 6 ingredients. Set aside.
2. Melt butter in large cast-iron skillet over medium heat. Add sweet potatoes, tossing to brown. Add apples and toss; remove from heat. Drizzle cider mixture over yams and apples; toss. Sprinkle with salt.
3. Bake until tender, about 15 minutes. Toss every 5 minutes, adding more cider if necessary to avoid sticking.
A nice change from the usual sweet potatoes.
