Top Review by Sue Lau

I'm sorry Mirj. This one didn't work out too well. I ended up baking it way longer than called for to get the sweet potatoes where I get get a fork into them, and by that time, the apples had gotten too mushy (and I did use the Cortlands). I did try tasting it, the apples had a flavor of lemon (even with the cider in the pan), and were a bit tart. I tried sprinkling with some cinnamon and nutmeg and drizzling honey over it all, and that did help tone that down some, and bring out some flavor. I think maybe the apples should be cut larger (in wedges) and those sweet potatoes cut thin, and do prepare for some honey or brown sugar on the apples at least. I think maybe that could help this recipe work.
