My sister-in-law found this recipe in a newspaper a few years ago and has shared it with me. It's a great addition to Thanksgiving dinner.

Directions

  1. Preheat the oven to 400 degrees.
  2. Place the sweet potatoes on a large baking sheet and bake until they are just tender. They should be soft, but not mushy. Set them aside to cool before peeling and slicing them.
  3. To prepare the sauce, in a heavy saucepan, melt the butter. Add the cider, orange juice, orange zest, spices and sugar. Heat the mixture to steaming.
  4. Add the apples and raisins. Cook them gently in the liquid until the apples are tender and the juices are just slightly thickened and somewhat reduced.
  5. Spray a 13 X 9 inch baking dish with non-stick spray.
  6. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees.
  7. Peel and slice the sweet potatoes into 1/2 inch rounds. Place half of the potato slices in the bottom of the prepared dish. Cover them with half the sauce.
  8. Cover and bake until the potatoes are hot, about 45 minutes to one hour. Remove the cover after 30 minutes.
  9. If desired, baste the sweet potatoes with the sauce during baking.
