“My Grandma shared this recipe with me and it's been a favorite of mine every year at Thanksgiving. It's by far better than any other yam side dish I've had. (I don't like yams and marshmallows.)” - by Diyeana
Original recipe yields 1 - 9x13-inch baking dish
- Preheat an oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C).
- Place the sweet potatoes into a large pot and cover with salted water. Bring to a boil over high heat; reduce heat to medium-low, cover, and simmer until just tender, 15 to 20 minutes. Drain and allow to steam dry for a minute or two. Peel and cut into 1/2-inch slices; layer the sweet potatoes and apples into a 9x13-inch baking dish.
- Meanwhile, stir together the sugar, cornstarch, salt, cinnamon, and nutmeg in a saucepan. Stir in the water and butter and bring to a simmer over medium heat. Cook and stir until thickened and no longer cloudy, 5 to 10 minutes. Pour over the sweet potatoes.
- Bake in the preheated oven until the apples are very tender and the sweet potatoes are golden on top, about 1 hour.

"This was a great recipe! I made it for Thanksgiving dinner and everyone loved it! It did take a bit longer than an hour for everything to be nice and tender, but I just covered it with foil and let ..." See moreit sit in the oven while other things were being finished."
"I also followed the recipe and used 1 1/4 cups of salt even though it sounded like it was going to be awful... It was awful and ended up throwing the whole batch away. Now I see the recipe was updated..." See more to 1 1/4 teaspoons of salt... I can see that being much better."
