Spiced Apple Sweet Potatoes
Just about any variety of apple can be used in this recipe. Varieties that hold up well during roasting are best, such as Golden Delicious or Granny Smith because they retain their color, taste and shape during cooking. But Honeycrisp apples can be used too, which the combination of sweet and tart contribute a nice touch to the sweet potatoes. Use whatever apples you prefer the most.
