Autumn is my favorite time of the year. I love the coolness of the air, the changing color of the leaves.

Gardeners are harvesting their bounty of fruits and vegetables. Friends are being invited over for "get-togethers" and enjoying each others company.

This is a new recipe that I found and I've tweaked it a bit to fit my taste. When cooking with apples I generally use Jonathan's or Winesap apples. They tend to have a better taste and hold their crunch a bit more.

How to Make Ham, Apple and Sweet Potato Casserole

Step-by-Step

  1. Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Lightly butter a shallow 3 quart casserole and set aside.
