Easy Sweet Potatoes with Apple Sauce
2 sweet potatoes, peeled and sliced into 1/2 inch chunks
1 cup apple sauce - I recommend Mullen's Apple Sauce
1/2 cup raisins (golden or regular) OR dried cranberries, or a combination
1 Tbs brandy OR dark rum (you can substitute brandy flavoring or rum flavoring)
Cook the sweet potato slices until just tender: You can steam, microwave or boil them as you prefer. Transfer the sweet potato slices to a 1-quart casserole (make sure it's microwave-safe if you plan on cooking in the microwave). Stir together the apple sauce, raisins and/or cranberries, and brandy or rum, then spoon over the sweet potatoes. For the microwave: Cover with a vented piece of plastic wrap and cook in the microwave at high until the sweet potatoes are fully cooked, about 4 or 5 minutes. For the oven: Bake at 350F degrees for about 20 to 25 minutes or until the sweet potatoes are fully cooked.
