Sweet Potato and Cranberry Saute

  • 1 1/4 cups apple cider
  • 1 lb. sweet potatoes, peeled and cut into slices (about 3 cups)
  • 1 cup chopped apple (1 large)
  • 2 Tbsp dried cranberries
  • 1/4 cup pure maple syrup (or agave nectar)
  • 1/4 tsp. salt
  • 2 Tbsp chopped hazelnuts, toasted 

In a large skillet, heat apple cider until just simmering.  Add sweet potato slices, spreading evenly.  Cover and cook over medium-low heat about 12 minutes or until potatoes are nearly tender.  
Stir in chopped apple, cranberries, maple syrup and salt.  Cook covered over low heat for 3 to 4 minutes more or until apple is just tender.  Uncover and boil gently for about 4 minutes until liquid is syrupy.  Sprinkle with nuts and enjoy!
