Sweet Potato Casserole
This sweet potato casserole dish is a sweet and healthy addition to any meal. Using a slow cooker frees up space in your oven, keeps the dish warm, and saves time.
4 pounds sweet potatoes about 5 medium
2 medium apples
½ C. water
¼ C. raw honey
2 tsp. cinnamon
¼ tsp. nutmeg
½ tsp. pink salt
2 Tbs. unsalted butter/ghee, optional
½ C. milk
½ C. coarsely chopped pecans lightly toasted
Scrub and peel the sweet potatoes, then chop them into 1-inch cubes and place in slow cooker. Peel the apples and chop them into 1-inch pieces; add to the slow cooker. Add the water, honey, cinnamon, nutmeg, and salt. Cover and cook on high heat for 3-3 ½ hours, until sweet potatoes are very soft.
Use a potato masher to mash the sweet potatoes and apples until your desired level of smoothness. If you like, you can also use an electric mixer to achieve a smoother consistency.
Add the butter (if using) and milk and stir until well combined. Sprinkle on the toasted, chopped pecans and set your slow cooker to the “Keep Warm” setting for serving.
