Default Fall Flavors Recipe

Just ran across this the other day. Haven't tried it, but I plan to. I'll bet you can halve the butter. It seemed like a wonderful fall side dish full of fall flavor and color.

Baked Sweet Potatoes with Dried Cranberries, Pears, and Pecans
Prepared by the River'd Inn

8 sweet potatoes, scrubbed
Vegetable oil
1 cup dried cranberries
4 Tbsp. butter
2 large pears, peeled and cored, cut into 1/4" dice
1 cup pecans, toasted and coarsely chopped
4 tsp. golden brown sugar
4 tsp. minced fresh ginger
2 Tbsp. balsamic vinegar
1/2 tsp. salt


1. Pierce potatoes with fork and rub with oil. Place on foil lined tray and bake until tender.

2. Soften cranberries in hot water for 5 minutes; drain.

3. Melt 1/2 butter in saute pan, saute until softened; add cranberries, pecans, brown sugar, ginger, and continue to cook for another minute; mix in 1/2 vinegar and salt.

4. Cut off 1/4 of each potato lengthwise, discard tops. Gently spoon out pulp into bowl. Add butter and remaining vinegar and season.

5. Spoon back into potato and mound top with cranberry mixture.

6. Cover until use. Re-warm sweet potatoes, uncovered, in 350 oven until heated through (about 20 minutes).
Be kind to your body...it's the only one you have.
