I must have done something wrong, but, the apples were mush and the potatoes were hard, not really a success in my opinion

Made this as a side for dinner last week (did not do the OAMC option). I followed the directions for the most part except for doubling the brown sugar and cinnamon, and using 3 Granny Smiths because the ones I had were small. I also stirred several times during the cook time to make sure everything stayed coated. My 3 year old really liked it and requested it at every meal until it was gone. My husband and I also thought it was good but would have preferred more sauce (it seemed a little on the dry side for us). I cooked a little longer than 45 minutes (about 5-10 extra minutes) just to make sure the sweet potatoes were tender. Ultimately, the apples were cooked to a great texture and the sweet potatoes worked out okay for us. I can see this being a very good side, especially in the fall. In the future, I would add more apples (personal preference) and try to increase the sauce (maybe more apple juice and butter would accomplish this? - I'll have to experiment). Thanks for posting!!!
