Apricot Sweet Potato Casserole

Total Time
Prep 10 mins
Cook 30 mins

This recipe came from a neighbor when I requested recipies for a cookbook our local history group was getting together. It has been a favorite of my family and many others that read it in our self published cookbook " The Main Menu of Memories". If you use fresh potatoes, they should be cooked first to al dente stage.

This recipe is delicious! Very similar to one I make using peaches instead of apricots.

This was a very nice sweet potato casserole great for holiday season! The apricot sauce was devine! Next time though I will use a little less brown sugar as was a little too sweet and I used more dried apricots and heaps of chopped pecans. Thanks for a nice dish!
