As you know, I’m not a coffee person at all so apple cider is one of my favorite go-to drinks in the mornings when the weather outside is super chilly. And if you have a Keurig at your office like I do then you KNOW how amazing the hot apple cider is! So when I saw this yummy saute in my Better Homes and Gardens magazine, I knew I had to try it, especially since it incorporates all my favorite things I love about Fall.
Except pumpkin of course.
But we’ll get to that a little later.
Recipe adapted from Better Homes & Gardens
- 1 1/4 cups apple cider (or apple juice)
- 1 lb. sweet potatoes, peeled and cut into slices (about 3 cups)
- 1 cup chopped apple (1 large)
- 2 Tbsp dried cranberries
- 1/4 cup pure maple syrup (or agave nectar)
- 1/4 tsp. salt
- 2 Tbsp chopped hazelnuts, toasted
- In a large skillet, heat apple cider until just simmering. Add sweet potato slices, spreading evenly.
- Cover and cook over medium-low heat about 12 minutes or until potatoes are nearly tender.
- Stir in chopped apple, cranberries, maple syrup and salt. Cook covered over low heat for 3 to 4 minutes more or until apple is just tender.

And to think canned pumpkin was the only thing that excited me this much, now it’s brick and floor boards.
