Spiced Sweet Potatoes

  • Rating ****

8 servings


  • 1 1/2 cups Smucker's Apricot Preserves
  • 1/2 cup water
  • 2 teaspoons lemon juice
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground nutmeg
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 4 large sweet potatoes, peeled and cut lengthwise into 8 wedges


Preheat the oven to 400 degrees F. In a heavy saucepan, combine the Smucker's preserves and water. Over medium-high heat, bring the mixture to a boil; reduce the heat and simmer for 5 minutes, stirring constantly. Remove the mixture from the heat and stir in the lemon juice, nutmeg and cinnamon.

Arrange the sweet potatoes in a baking pan. Using a pastry brush, baste the potatoes thoroughly with sauce, using about half the sauce. Bake about 40 minutes, or until tender, basting with the remaining sauce about halfway through cooking time.
