Autumn Sweet Potato-Apple Bake

  • 8 large sweet potaotes
  • 2lbs McIntosh apples
  • 1/2 cup brown sugar
  • 1/4 tsp nutmeg
  • 1tsp cinnamon
  • 6+ tablespoons unsalted butter
  • 5T honey

Preheat the oven to 350 degrees.

Boil the sweet potatoes until cooked but still firm. When they have cooled enough to handle, peel them and cut them into 1/4 inch slices.

Peel the apples, core them and cut them into 1/4 inch slices.

Mix the sugar, nutmeg, and cinnamon together.

Grease a 2-quart casserole. Put in a layer of sweet potatoes, and dot them with butter. Sprinkle some of the nutmeg/cinnamon/sugar mixture.

Arrange a layer of apple slices on the potatoes, and drizzle on about 2tsp of the honey.

Continue alternating layers of sweet potatoes with nutmeg/cinnamon/sugar and apples with honey. Finish with apples and dot with butter to taste.

Bake for one hour until the top is brown.
