applebutter sweet pOTTatoes

For this weeks edition of "I canned a whole lOTT, now I'm baking in my Bistro" I will be using canned applebutter to make a delisious side dish with sweet potatoes.  (That's right, applebutter is not just for toast and biscuits anymore.)  This is just another example of creative ways to use what you can throughout the year.
My father grows sweet potatoes in his garden so these came from him.  I took 3 medium sized sweet potatoes and peeled the skin off, then chopped into 1/4 inch coins.

I layered these potatoes on a greased baking dish, sprinkled with a little salt and pepper and poured 1/2 cup of applebutter over the top.  I then baked at 350 degrees for for 30 minutes. 

The applebutter gives a nice sweet flavor to the sweet potatoes similar to if you used brown sugar or marshmellows.

I received my home canning discovery kit Sat. - thanks sooo much! I am excited to give it a try! Perhaps apple butter is where I should start! Thanks for linking to the hearth'nsoul blog hop.

I just canned some applesauce, this will be a great way to use some of it. Looks like a great combination. Thank You...

That's a great idea. I love sweet potatoes and have some apple butter I canned a few years ago.

I love to see the sweet preserves being used in nontraditional ways. So much more interesting than a smear on toast. Thank you for linking to Hearth and Soul (formerly Two for Tuesday).

Apple butter, hmm, another possibility for my apples from Tuttle! It looks really delicious with sweet potatoes. Keith does not like sweet potatoes, he thinks that they are yucky. I just look at him like he's an alien when he says things like that. I, on the other hand, love them!

Hey miss hot ott! :) My dad always says my sweet potatoes are too sweet because I use brown sugar and pecans. I think this version would be more to his liking! Very cool! Just a note that the two for tuesdays is now called hearth n soul. Thanks for linking up! :) Alex@amoderatelife
