Wow, it’s November! It seems like it was just yesterday that I was complaining about summer ending. And now we’re smack-dab in the middle of fall.

Fall! When everything is pumpkin flavored!

Fall! When The Real Housewives of Atlanta is back on TV!

Fall! When sweet potatoes are plentiful!

Apple Cider Glazed Sweet Potatoes
So I decided to come up with a delicious sweet potato recipe for you. I thought to myself, “Hey! It’s fall! And I haven’t posted any sweet potato recipes yet this season!”

Then while I was editing the photos for this post, I realized: oh, I did sweet potato gnocchi last week. I did do a sweet potato recipe this season. Oops. I guess since it was pasta, somehow it didn’t feel like a sweet potato recipe. Or something.

But that’s okay, right? Because we can all use easy side dish ideas and that’s exactly what this Apple Cider Glazed Sweet Potatoes recipe is–easy! The potatoes are roasted in the oven until they’re tender and then glazed with an apple cider reduction. Simple!

I love apple cider like nobody’s business. Seriously, I could chug a jug a day if my conscience would let me. And I really like sweet potatoes so I’ll have to make this soon.

I have made these several times and have a batch in the oven right now. This is by far my new favorite way to eat sweet potatoes! My husband likes things sweet so I add some brown sugar to the cider before reducing, and it’s fantastic. Thank you for this tasty and simple dish!

Do you use regular cider instead of spiced cider? How much brown sugar or other ingredients? Thank you
My mom made a glazed sweet potato that I remember as the best ever and it had a ham glaze; I would love to eat that again! I wasn’t into cooking so never learned her receipies.

Hey Eunice, we’ve only tested this recipe with spiced cider. There’s no need for brown sugar since the cider is already sweet, and when you make the reduction it thickens nicely.

You could add mulling spices to it or find a recipe for spiced apple cider. The local apple cider that I buy is already spiced, so I’ve never had to add the spices myself.

Thank you so much for this amazing looking recipe! I love healthy recipes and I will look forward to trying it out and sharing it with my followers. As Arnold says “I’ll be back” 🙂 Thanks again!

I just made these for our Thanksgiving dinner. I couldn’t find spiced apple cider so I used the regular kind. I add cinnamon and apple pie spice — a dash of each. They were delicious! Thanks for sharing!
