1/1 Photo of Cider-Glazed Sweet Potatoes With Cranberries
Though I am not diabetic, the emphasis on lower sugar and higer fiber recipes suits my own tastes. This is an adaptation of a recipe from dlife.com (which obtained it from the American Cancer Research Institute) with changes that do not alter the exchanges. I am planning to try this for Christmas but want it here for safekeeping. Most likely, I will try this with the Splenda brown sugar blend which will actually reduce the carb count.

My Private Note
Units: US | Metric
- 1Cook sweet potatoes in a large pot of boiling salted water until halfway cooked, (a knife inserted into center will face some snap), about 5 minutes. Drain and cool. (You can do this a day in advance and store the cubes in the icebox in a covered container.).
- 2Combine cider, sugar, butter, nutmeg and allspice in a large non-stick skillet over medium-high heat. Bring to a boil, stirring often. Add potatoes and reduce heat so liquid is simmering.
- 3Cook 5 minutes, stirring occasionally. Add cranberries and continue cooking until liquid is reduced to a syrupy glaze and potatoes are tender, about 10 minutes. (If the glaze becomes very thick before potatoes become tender, thin it with a small amount of cider or a water).
- 4When potatoes are tender, add salt and pepper to taste.
