Maple-ginger sweet potatoes

Tuesday, March 05, 2013

I found this recipe in a 'Diabetic Slow Cooker' magazine. I'm always looking for healthy recipes to try. This one states: "Delicious & Nutritious. An excellent source of vitamins A and C, sweet potatoes also contain antioxidant and anti-inflammatory nutrients." emoticon

1-1/2 pounds sweet potatoes, peeled and cut into bite-size pieces (about 5 cups)
2 medium tart cooking apples, such as Granny Smith, cored and coarsely chopped
1/4 cup dried cranberries
1-1/2 teaspoons freshly grated ginger
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1/4 teaspoon ground nutmeg
1/8 teaspoon black pepper
1/2 cup water
1/4 cup light pancake syrup

1. In a 3-1/2 or 4 quart slow cooker, combine sweet potatoes, apples, dried cranberries, ginger, salt, cinnamon, nutmeg and pepper. Pour the water and syrup over all in cooker.

2. Cover and cook on low heat setting for 5 to 6 hours or on high heat setting for 2-1/2 to 3 hours.
