  • 1 tablespoon butter
  • 3.5 cups sweet potatoes * diced from 3 medium potatoes
  • 3.5 cups apples * diced from 3 apples (I use Granny Smith)
  • 1 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground nutmeg
  • 3 tablespoons pure maple syrup


  • Melt the butter in a large frying pan over medium high heat.
  • Add the sweet potatoes and cook, stirring frequently, until almost tender, about 10-15 minutes.
  • Stir in the apples, cinnamon, and nutmeg. Cover and continue to cook, stirring often, until the sweet potatoes and apples are fork tender, about another 5-10 minutes.
  • Drizzle with maple syrup, stir, and serve.


Tips and Techniques for the Best Sweet Potatoes and Apples

  • If you prefer a sweeter recipe, you can swap in a sweeter apple variety like Fugi or Gala.
  • Try to cut your sweet potatoes and apples into as evenly-sized pieces as possible. This will help them all cook at the same rate so that you don’t end up with mushy or hard pieces.
  • Store leftovers in an air-tight container in the refrigerator. Use within 4-5 days.
