Sweet Potatoes with Apples and Walnuts
2 large or 4 smaller sweet potatoes, peeled and diced
2 Granny Smith apples, peeled and diced
1 cup raw sugar
1/4 cup water
1/2 cup coconut milk
1 teaspoon cinnamon
1 teaspoon sea salt
1/4 teaspoon ginger
1/4 teaspoon cloves
1/4 teaspoon nutmeg (I use freshly grated)
1 cup walnuts
Preheat oven to 375 degrees F.
Place sweet potatoes and apples in a baking dish and bake for 1/2 hour, or until sweet potatoes and apples are soft.
In a saucepan, combine sugar and water. Gently stir and cook until the mixture turns a dark amber color, but don't let it burn! Slowly stir in coconut milk. Remove from heat and stir in remaining ingredients. Pour into sweet potato mixture and mix well.
