Sweet Potato Apple Mash
2-3 Pounds of organic garnet sweet potatoes
6-8 med size apples (I used Braeburn and Granny Smith organic)
Cut up the sweet potatoes into small wedges and boil until very soft. Peel off the skin and place in Bowl. Add 2 tsp sea salt. 1-2 tsp of Saigon Cinnamon and ¼ to ½ cup raw or organic butter. There is a BIG difference in cinnamon types. This is the best. Stir with spoon, it should be chunky. You can add 1 TBSP of coconut or maple sugar (optional).
Peel and slice up the apples into chunks about 1-2 inch size. Put in pot with ¼ cup of water, 1 tsp Saigon Cinnamon and ½ tsp of sea salt. Cover and bring to boil over medium heat. Cook until soft . The consistency should be chunky. If you want a short cut- you can mix in organic apple sauce – like Santa Cruz instead of making your own.
Mix the sweet potatoes and apple mixture together. The ratio should be 2/3-3/4 sweet potato and ¼ to 1/3 apple sauce. Can be served hot or cold.
Variation: You can mix part sweet potatoes and part butternut squash together with the apples. Use the same proportions.
