  1. Place the sweet potato in a medium saucepan and fill with enough water to cover the potatoes. Bring to a boil, reduce heat to medium, and simmer for about 20 minutes or until tender. Remove from heat, drain and set aside.
  2. Melt butter over low heat in a small saucepan. Mix in the sugar, cinnamon and allspice. Add the apple slices, cover, and let simmer for 5 minutes, or until the apples are tender. Mix the apple mixture into the drained sweet potatoes along with the milk. Mix well using an electric mixer or just a fork until potatoes are mashed.

Very, very good! This was a huge hit with my family! I doubled the recipie, and just eyeballed the cinnamon and nutmeg. After mashing it with a potato masher, I put it in a casserole dish, sp...

We loved this! I used a golden delicious apple instead of a granny smith (I think a granny smith might be a little too tart for my tastes), brown sugar instead of white, added an extra tbp of bu...

I cannot say enough great things about this recipe! It's fast, easy, simple, healthful and tasty. I've made it with both brown sugar and white sugar and can't tell much of a difference. Most ...

This was very good. My daughter loved it, my husband was so-so but he is not a sweet potato lover. I added a little extra butter when simmering the apples. I would not add the milk until you hav...

I thought this was delicious. I didn't cook the apples long enough that they "mashed" along with the potatoees, but I didn't think that mattered. I liked the bite of apple flavor mixed in with...
