I found this in the Chicago Tribune and plan on adding it to my Thanksgiving menu. It originally comes from Wisconsin cranberry grower Judie Harkner.
- Combine sweet potatoes, orange juice and butter in a large microwave-safe bowl; cover with plastic wrap and heat on high (100 percent power), stirring occasionally, 12 minutes.
- Stir in cranberries and brown sugar; cover and heat on high until potatoes are tender and cranberries burst, about 5 minutes.
- Toss mixture with orange zest; stir in almonds if desired.
I enjoyed the combination of flavors for this sweet potato very much. I changed "how" I cooked the sweet potatoes. I baked them whole for about an hour to hour and half, then sliced them in half. I scooped the center out and left the shell with about a half inch of sweet potato in the shell. I combined all the ingredients and filled the shells back up. I baked them for about 20 minutes. Loved it! Thanks for posting!!
Wonderful! Great combination of flavors and I especially appreciated that this could be popped in the microwave. I made this for Christmas dinner along with a spiral ham and my brother, who does not like sweet potatoes enjoyed this!
OH Yummy, this should have more than 5 stars, absolutley Delicious. I cut the recipe in half for the two of us, but should have made the whole recipe. I didn't have fresh Cranberies and store had nome so I substituted canned whole cranberries, this worked great, yummy. But will make this again when I can get fresh cranberries. The orange zest adds a lot of flavor and the toasted almonds adds flavor and crunch. DH loved this, Thank you Judy for another great recipe.
