Sweet Potatoes & Apples in Caramel Sauce

Did you EAT yourself SILLY?

We sure did.

Leftovers today even tasted tasty?

I was trying to decide if I had a picture for each recipe on our Thanksgiving Day Menu.

This is one of my hubbies favorites, and I believe it was posted without a picture. I realize it’s a tab bit late now, but some of you would enjoy this on a Christmas menu as well.

It’s the Caramel sauce and the apples paired with the yams or Sweet Potatoes that sets it apart. Did I mention the yummy toasted Marshmallows!

What’s next . . . CHRISTMAS BAKING!

Part one

Part Two


5 medium yams or sweet potatoes
2 cans of canned yams or sweet potatoes, drained well
3 Tart apples
Cook the yams until they are not quite done. Skin them & cut in small chunks. Or Drain canned yams, and layer with the chunks of apples in a 9×13 glass dish. Now prepare the sauce:
2 cups boiling water
1 cup Brown sugar
3 Tablespoons cornstarch
pinch salt
1 Tablespoon Butter
Mix the brown sugar with the cornstarch & blend well. Add 2 cups of boiling water, slowly, along with the salt and butter. Cook over medium heat until the sauce has turned clear in color.
Pour the glaze over the yams and the apples. Bake for 1 hour at 300 degrees, or until the apples have softened. Melt mini marshmallows over the top under the broiler. Watch closely as they brown very quickly.

    There isn’t much I wouldn’t eat with caramel sauce drizzled on top!
