Crockpot Sweet Potatoes & Apples

Updated Candied Yams

Not only is this recipe easy, it will save you a ton of fat and sugar commonly found in most southern style candied yams.  Throw this in your slow cooker and it’s one less dish you need to think about as it takes care of itself. These slow cooker sweet potatoes are sure to please.



2 lbs sweet potatoes, peeled and cut into slices

3 granny smith apples peeled, cored and sliced

3 TBSP Earth Balance melted (or your preferred butter/spread)

1/2 cup orange juice

½ cup water

zest of 1 orange

2 TBSP cornstarch

2 tsp pure vanilla extract

1 tsp ground cinnamon

1/4 tsp ground nutmeg

1/3 cup 100% pure maple syrup



Spray Crockpot with cooking spray.  Lay sweet potatoes and apples in the slow cooker.  In a mixing bowl, whisk together orange juice, water, cornstarch, zest, vanilla, cinnamon, nutmeg, and maple syrup.  Pour over sweet potatoes and apples and place lid on.  Cook on low for 4-6 hours or high for 2-3 hours, until fork tender.
