Glazed Sweet Potatoes with Maple Gastrique

A classic sweet potato recipe using our Maple Balsamic. Easy, delicious and nutritious. A ‘gastrique’ is a simple sweet-and-sour type of sauce. The sugars in our balsamic caramelize and reduce to make a tart, slightly thickened syrup.

Ingredients:

  • 3 medium sweet potatoes
  • ¾ cup Fresh Harvest Maple Balsamic
  • 4 tablespoons (1/2 stick) unsalted butter
  • Black Pepper and Salt (to taste)
  • 1 tbsp. chopped fresh marjoram leaves

NOTE: You can also use 3-4 tbsps. of Fresh Harvest butter olive oil in lieu of butter for a vegan dish.

Directions

Preheat oven to 400°

Slice each sweet potato in half lengthwise, and slice each half crosswise into 1-inch-thick half-moons.

Melt butter in a large cast-iron or other ovenproof skillet over medium heat. Add sweet potatoes; toss to coat evenly.

Add Fresh Harvest maple balsamic; toss potatoes to coat, and bring to a boil. Toss and immediately transfer skillet to oven.

Transfer skillet to oven; cook, stirring occasionally, until potatoes are golden, well glazed, and tender when pierced with a paring knife, about 20 minutes.

Remove from oven, and season with salt and pepper to your taste.

Serve warm, garnished fresh marjoram.
