I peeled and cut my potatoes and then baked the whole thing. It took longer to cook, but oh, so worth the wait. It was scrumptious! Very good as an addition to a Thanksgiving or Christmas meal, very hearty and sweet and tangy, all at the same time. I loved the apple cider, probably will never use the orange juice it calls for. I'm talking real apple cider, too. Not that TreeTop stuff from the grocery store. Walmart carries a Honey Crisp Apple cider year round that fits the bill. But if you live in an area where cider is made, all the better. Enjoy!

  1. Cook sweet potatoes, drain and cool slightly. Peel and cut into 1/4 inch slices. (I peeled and cut first. Took a longer cooking time. Good for a time bake oven.
