Event Description

Slow Cooker Sweet Potatoes


6 medium sweet potatoes, peeled and cut into 1/2 inch chunks -- I prefer to roughly peel or not peel at all
1 1/2 c applesauce (cinnamon flavored is good as well) -- I prefer no sugar added apple sauce
4 tbls butter melted
1 tsp ground cinnamon - or less if you used cinnamon flavored applesauce - I go by my "nose."
Pinch salt
1/2 c chopped nuts - walnuts are great as are pecans - toast first for extra flavor


Place sweet potatoes in a slow cooker, at least 3 qts (Double everything if cooking for a crowd )
Mix ingredients and pour over potatoes. Do not add water, keep covered and it will make it's own steam.
Cover and cook 6 - hours until potatoes are very tender.
Sprinkle with nuts before serving - do not add nuts before then, as they could get soft.

Sweet Potato Facts - Did you know:
Very light colored sweet potatoes are not as sweet and are drier than the darker-skin ones.
Darker skinned sweet potatoes are by contrast moist and sweet when cooked.
Choose your favorite! For this dish, I prefer the darker skinned sweet potatoes.
