Mashed Sweet Potatoes with Caramelized Pineapple Recipe
4 sweet potatoes
½ cup diced pineapple
2 tablespoons apple juice concentrate, thawed
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
¼ teaspoon ground nutmeg
¼ teaspoon ground cinnamon
Pre-heat oven to 400 F.
Scrub potatoes. Wrap each potato in aluminum foil. Roast potatoes in oven until soft (about 45 minutes to 60 minutes, depending on size of potato). Cool, then peel.
In a small nonstick skillet over medium heat, add pineapple, apple juice concentrate, vanilla, nutmeg, and cinnamon. Cook until golden brown, about 5 minutes.
In a large bowl, mash potatoes with a wire whip. Mix in caramelized pineapple mixture until well combined. Serve immediately.
