Most people think about sweet potatoes for Thanksgiving. However, sweet potatoes make a wonderful side dish throughout the year. This easy to make recipe can be made any time in your slow-cooker or you could bake it in your oven.

2 ½ pounds sweet potatoes or yams, peeled and sliced or cubed
1 to 2 tbsp Dark Brown Sugar
1 tsp Kosher Salt
1 tsp Cinnamon
½ tsp Ginger
½ tsp Nutmeg
¼ cup Maple Syrup
2 tbsp Butter
1/2 to 1 cup Pecans, chopped
3 Apples, chopped

You could convert this recipe to make it in your oven. Making this recipe in a slow-cooker is nice because you can add your ingredients at two different times and basically forget about it except to stir once in awhile.

Place all ingredients in a slow-cooker except for the pecans and apples. Cook for about 2 hours. Add pecans and apples stirring ingredients. Cook for another hour or until sweet potatoes reach desired tenderness. You can cook this longer to allow the sweet potatoes to turn into mashed sweet potatoes or less time to maintain their cubed texture.
