The recipe contest continues for a bit longer during November. I am extending the deadline until November 29th since everyone is so busy this time of year.
I am looking for your favorite Sweet Potato recipe and the winner will receive dinner for two at the Farmhouse restaurant.
For more details, click contest. I am anxious to try all of the wonderful recipes I am receiving.
Please send recipes to Marie.
Here is my recipe entry for the November Sweet Potato contest:
Sweet Potato Compote
2 medium-sized sweet potatoes, peeled
2 medium Fugi apples, peeled
2 medium red pears, peeled
1/4 cup dried red cherries
1/2 stick non-salted butter, melted
1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1/2 teaspoon ground nutmeg (fresh is great)
2 Tablespoons dark brown sugar
2 Tablespoons toasted pecan pieces (optional)
Cut potatoes and fruit (omitting cherries) into bite-size pieces then cook potatoes first on med.-low heat in the butter until nearly soft, but slightly firm. Add the apples and pears sugar, cinnamon, nutmeg, and cherries and continue cooking on medium heat, stirring often, for about 5 minutes, or until dried cherries have plumped and apples are nearly soft, but retain some firmness. Stir in pecan pieces.
Serve piping hot!
