Cider Candied Sweet Potatoes

Comment on this recipe

Ingredients

2 cups fresh pressed apple cider
1-1/2 cups honey
Grated zest of 1 lemon
4 tablespoons lemon juice
3 tablespoons unsalted butter
1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
1/2 teaspoon ground allspice
1/4 teaspoon ground nutmeg
6 medium sweet potatoes, peel and slice crosswise into 3/4-inch rounds

Instructions

In a deep medium saucepan, bring the cider, honey, lemon zest, lemon juice, butter, cinnamon, allspice and nutmeg to a simmer over medium heat and cook for 10 minutes. Add the sweet potatoes and partially cover. (Add more cider if needed, to barely cover the sweet potatoes.) Simmer over medium-low heat until the potatoes are just tender but not falling apart, about 45 minutes. Using a slotted spoon, carefully transfer the sweet potatoes to a warm serving bowl and cover with foil to keep warm. Increase heat to high and boil cider mixture until thickened and evaporated to about 1 cup, 5-8 minutes. Pour the hot syrup over the sweet potatoes and serve immediately. Serves 6-8.
