Holiday Sweet Potato Casserole
- 3 pounds sweet potatoes, baked until just tender
- 2 pears, cut lengthwise into eights
- 2 golden delicious apples, cut as the pears
- 1/4 cup lemon juice tossed with apples
- 1/4 pound butter
- 1/2 cup brown sugar
- 1/4 cup honey
- 2 Tablespoons rum
- 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
Cook, in a sauce pan, the butter, brown sugar, honey, rum and cinnamon on the stove until the sugar dissolves.
Peel and slice potatoes diagonally, 1/4 inch thick. Arrange the fruit and potatoes standing up in a 13 inch pan. Spoon sauce over all. Bake in a 400 degree oven 20 minutes, basting, until bubbling. Brown under a broiler if desired. You can garnish with orange zest.
I give Sharon Walters credit for this recipe. Always a winner that can be prepared– up to the baking part– in advance.
