Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Cook sweet potatoes in a large pot of boiling salted water until halfway cooked, (a knife inserted into center will encounter resistance), about 5 minutes.
  2. Drain and cool.
  3. (This step can be done 1 day ahead if sweet potatoes are covered and refrigerated.)
  4. Combine cider, sugar, butter, nutmeg and allspice in a large non-stick skillet over medium-high heat.
  5. Bring to a boil, stirring often.
  6. Add potatoes and reduce heat so liquid is simmering.
  7. Cook 5 minutes, stirring occasionally.
  8. Add cranberries and continue cooking until liquid is reduced to a syrupy glaze and potatoes are tender, about 10 minutes.
  9. (If the glaze becomes very thick before potatoes become tender, thin it with a small amount of cider.
  10. When potatoes are tender, transfer to a serving bowl with a slotted spoon.
  11. Season to taste with salt and pepper.
  12. Pour remaining glaze over sweet potatoes and serve.
