Fresh.n.Natural's picture
  Sweet potatoes 6 Medium
  Boiling salted water 1 Cup (16 tbs)
  Molasses 2 Tablespoon
  Butter 1⁄2 Cup (8 tbs)
  Red apples 4 Medium, cored and cut into 1/2-4nch-thick slices
  Orange juice 1⁄4 Cup (4 tbs)
  Grated orange rind 1 Tablespoon
  Salt 1⁄2 Teaspoon

1. Scrub the sweet potatoes, cover with the boiling salted water, cover, and simmer for 30 minutes, or until the potatoes are tender.
2. Meanwhile, heat 1 tablespoon molasses with 1/4 cup of the butter in a skillet. Add the apple slices and turn to coat with the mixture. Simmer very gently until barely tender, about 10 minutes, turning twice during the cooking.
3. Drain the potatoes, peel and mash or puree them. Add the remaining butter, remaining molasses, the orange juice, orange rind, and salt. Beat until light and fluffy.
4. Mound the mixture on top of the apple rings.
