    Maple Sweet Potato-Apple Casserole

    5 medium sweet potatoes
    3 to 4 large baking apples
    7 tablespoons real maple syrup (divided)
    ½ cup chopped pecans
    ¼ to ½ cup dried cranberries (Craisins)
    6 tablespoons butter, melted
    ½ teaspoon salt
    1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
    ¼ teaspoon ground nutmeg
    3 tablespoons apple juice
    2 tablespoons cornstarch

    Peel sweet potatoes and halve lengthwise; cut into ¼-inch slices. In large pot of boiling water over high heat, parboil sweet potato slices until bright orange and point of sharp knife easily pierces but does not break apart slices (4-5 minutes). Drain well.

    While sweet potatoes are boiling, core and slice apples, then sauté in non-stick skillet in 2 tablespoons maple syrup over medium heat until softened but not mushy (3-4 minutes). Remove from heat.

    Place sweet potatoes in an even layer in buttered 9 x 13 inch baking dish, overlapping as needed. Top evenly with apples. Sprinkle pecans and Craisins over apples.

    In 2-cup measuring cup, whisk together melted butter, remaining 5 tablespoons maple syrup, salt, cinnamon and nutmeg. In small bowl, whisk together apple juice and cornstarch until smooth. Whisk into butter mixture. Pour evenly over sweet potato and apple mixture.

    Cover tightly with foil and bake at 375 degrees until liquid is bubbly, about 45 minutes. Uncover and bake until liquid thickens to glaze potatoes and apples, about 15 minutes.

    Variations: Substitute rum or bourbon for apple juice. Layer some drained, crushed pineapple or golden raisins with the sweet potatoes and apples (instead of the Craisins).

    Mantenna, I just wanted to let you know I will be trying this recipe tomorrow. I'll let you know how it turns out

    Well, I just wanted to pop in and say Happy Thanksgiving to everyone! I'm about to pack up my laptop to fly to Georgia, so I won't be on again until Friday, probably.

    But I hope everyone has a safe, fun, and stuffed Thanksgiving! (or normal thursday, for all you Canadians and foreigners )

    Well, I'm outta here too; my kind (sometimes) boss has said I can go ahead and leave, so I'm off for a five-hour roadtrip to my mom's house. Or more, depending on traffic.
    Have a happy holiday, all (except the Canadians ) and I'll see you guys on Monday! (I guess someone will be starting a Christmas party thread?) Those of you who are also traveling, be safe!

    I just wanted to wish everyone a blessed Thanksgiving no matter what you are doing or where you are. Have a safe and enjoyable one. Eat and drink (unless you're driving ) to your heart's content.

    If you are working, I feel for you but, maybe a good mood and holiday cheer from someone will reach you and make your day better!
