Sweet Potatoes with Apple and Pear
Elizabeth Terry
Great Women Chefs:
Marvelous Meals and Innovative Recipes
from the Stars of American Cuisine
by Julie Stillman, 1996, Turner Publishing, Inc.


“The sweetness in this recipe complements
chicken and pork dishes wonderfully.”

Serves 4

3 cups peeled and diced sweet potatoes
1/2 teaspoon salt
2 bay leaves
1 apple, peeled and diced
1 pear, peeled and diced
1/2 cup apple cider
1/4 teaspoon cinnamon
1 tablespoon sugar
2 tablespoons unsalted butter

In a medium saucepan bring the sweet potatoes, salt and 1 cup water
to a boil over high heat. Lower the heat, cover, and simmer until the
potatoes are almost soft, about 6 minutes.
Stir in bay leaves, apple, pear, cider, cinnamon, sugar and butter.
Cover and simmer 10 more minutes. Remove the lid, stir, raise the
heat to medium, and cook until the juice is reduced and slightly
thickened, about 5 more minutes. Remove bay leaves and serve.
