If you read my blog very often, you are aware of my love for sweet potatoes. My latest (until this post) recipe for sweet potato biscuits, has quickly become a favorite. I saw this recipe for Applesauce Sweet Potatoes in a Taste of Home magazine I saw in a waiting room recently. 

I didn't wait too long to give it a try AND we LOVE them. The original recipe was credited to Pamela Allen of Marysville, OH. I changed the amounts because I didn't use 3 lbs of sweet potatoes, but I will share her recipe with you. I did substitute chunky peachy applesauce (which was great, btw) I also changed the cooking time. Even my smaller amount would not have been ready cooking on LOW for 4 - 5 hours.


3        lbs. sweet potatoes (about 5 medium), peeled and sliced
1-1/2  cups unsweetened applesauce (I did use chunky peachy applesauce)
2/3    cups packed brown sugar
3        tablespoons butter, melted
1         teaspoon ground cinnamon
1/2     cup glazed pecans, chopped , optional (I did plan to add these and then forgot when I had to change the cooking temperature.)

Place prepared sweet potatoes in a 4-quart slow cooker that has been sprayed with non-stick cooking spray. 

In a bowl, mix the applesauce, brown sugar, melted butter, and cinnamon.

Pour over sweet potatoes.

Cook, covered, on HIGH for 3 - 4 hours or until sweet potatoes are tender. (The top ones didn't look done, but tested done. The ones underneath looked perfect.)

If desired, sprinkle with glazed pecans before serving.
