Sweet Potato Gnocchi with Reduced Cider Sauce
4 large sweet potatoes
1/2 cup flour at a minimum, more might be needed
1/4 teaspoon cinnamon
salt and pepper
1 cup apple cider vinegar
3-4 fresh sage leaves roughly chopped
1 red apple cored and chopped up
1/2 cup apple juice
sugar if needed
Bake the sweet potatoes in 450 F oven until soft. The cooking time varies depending on size of potato, etc.
Peel, mash, and add cinnamon, salt to taste and pepper to taste.
Mix in flour until dough holds its shape, but do not add too much that it becomes too stiff and hard to manage.
Roll out and then roll pieces of dough. Roughly 1 inch balls. Cook these in salted boiling water until they float to the top.
As you are baking the potatoes make the sauce.
In a sauce pan add the vinegar and apple cider and allow to reduce by half at a slow boil. Add in the apple chunks so that they get soft but don't fall apart. When the sauce is reduced add in the sage, salt, and pepper to taste, and sugar if needed.
This sauce is more like a dressing so it will just cover and soak into the gnocchi. Other sauces can be used instead, creamy ones are good also. Very good with a thanksgiving meal!!!
