Making a holiday meal that is gluten free / paleo can be a challenge especially with many gluten eating guests. Sweet potatoes alone are great and I wanted to avoid adding all the sugar and junk. Plus I used the slow cooker to make this dish super easy.
6 Sweet Potatoes (cleaned and cut into large cubes)
2 Apples (peeled and cut into cubes)
2/3 Cup Apple Cider (fresh, not pasteurized)
1/2 Crushed Pecans
1 teaspoon Cinnamon
2 Tbs Butter (any kind)
Place all the sweet potatoes and apples in a large slow cooker. Pour in the cider and turn the heat on low. Place cover on top and cook for about 8 hours. Once done, give a good stir and mash with a potato masher. Potatoes should be very soft and easy to work with. Most of the liquid with be gone but if not then cook an addition 45 minutes with the cover off. Then using a food processor or blender process the mix until you get the consistency your looking for. You can serve at this point or our into a nice casserole dish and add a topping. Simple mix nuts, butter and cinnamon by hand in small bowl. Sprinkle topping on top and bake at 350 for ten minutes. Enjoy!
