Maple-Glazed Sweet Potatoes

As these sweet potatoes cook, a blend of maple syrup and apple cider vinegar thickens into a light glaze.



Ingredient Line: 
1 cup pure maple syrup
Ingredient Line: 
¼ cup apple cider vinegar
Ingredient Line: 
1 Tbs. olive oil
Ingredient Line: 
1 tsp. salt
Ingredient Line: 
2 cinnamon sticks
Ingredient Line: 
3 lb. sweet potatoes or garnet yams, peeled and cut into 1-inch chunks
Ingredient Line: 
2 Tbs. shelled roasted unsalted sunflower seeds or pumpkin seeds


1. Preheat oven to 425°F. Combine maple syrup, vinegar, 1/2 cup water, oil, salt, and cinnamon sticks in 13- x 9-inch baking dish. Add sweet potatoes, and stir to coat.

2. Cover dish tightly with foil, and bake 10 minutes. Uncover, and bake 30 to 35 minutes more, basting potatoes every 10 minutes with maple mixture, until maple mixture thickens and potatoes glisten and begin to brown. Remove from oven, season with salt and pepper (if desired), and stir in sunflower seeds.

Comments on this Recipe

This looks like another good recipe for sweet potatoes. Sally

We enjoyed this recipe. My daughter is not a big fan of orange vegetables and she asked for seconds. I used half sweet potatoes and half acorn squash because that is what I had. We had extra sauce left and I think it will be delicious over rice. I may add some arrowroot to thicken it a bit. Thanks for the recipe!
