Posted on November 06, 2019 | Recipe
Sweet potatoes are a versatile and delicious market find. Cook them down with apple cider and spices in this easy spread recipe from Inspired by the Seasons. Top toasted crusty bread or weekend waffles. Mmmmm...
- 4 c peeled sweet potatoes cut into 2" chunks (about 2 medium sized)
- 1 c apple cider
- 3 tsp fresh ginger
- 1 T molasses
- 1/2 tsp nutmeg
Add apple cider, sweet potatoes and ginger to a medium sized saucepan. Cover and cook at a simmer for 25-30 minutes until the sweet potatoes are very tender. Remove pan from heat and blend with an immersion blender or transfer to a blender and process until smooth. Return to heat and stir in nutmeg and molasses. Cook an additional 15 minutes uncovered at a low simmer. Stir occasionally until mixture resembles a thick paste (it should stick to a spoon when inverted). Remove from heat, let cool and transfer to a lidded glass container, store in refrigerator for up to a month.
