  • Active Time 35m
  • Total Time 45m

10 servings

Dried apricots, raisins and curry powder make unusual but delectable partners for sweet potatoes in this old-style Southern recipe. Try it with roasted pork tenderloin, turkey or chicken.

Make Ahead Tip: Cover and refrigerate for up to 2 days. Reheat on the stovetop or in the microwave.

ingredients

  • 4 1/2 pounds sweet potatoes (8 or 9 medium), peeled and cut into 1-inch pieces
  • 1 teaspoon salt, plus more to taste
  • 1 cup dried apricots (3 ounces), cut into 1/4-inch slivers
  • 1/2 cup raisins
  • 1 cup boiling water
  • 1 tablespoon canola oil
  • 1 onion, finely chopped
  • 2 teaspoons curry powder
  • Freshly ground pepper to taste

directions

Place the sweet potatoes in a large pot and add enough cold water to cover by 1 inch. Add 1 teaspoon salt and bring to a boil over high heat. Reduce heat to medium and cook, uncovered, until tender but not mushy, 8-12 minutes. Drain well.

Meanwhile, combine the apricots, raisins and boiling water in a small bowl; let sit until plumped, about 10 minutes.

Heat the oil in a large wide pot over medium-high heat. Add the onion and cook, stirring often, until softened, about 2 minutes. Add the curry powder and cook, stirring, until fragrant, about 2 minutes. Add the cooked sweet potatoes, apricots, raisins and the fruit-soaking liquid. Season with salt and pepper. Stir gently over medium-low heat until warmed through.
