Yams with Pears

Ingredients
1
pound yams or sweet potatoes
4
teaspoons cornstarch
1/8
teaspoon salt
1/8
teaspoon ground allspice
1
cup apple juice or apple cider
1/4
cup golden raisins or chopped dates
2
teaspoons lemon juice
2
ripe medium pears, cored and cut into 3/4-inch pieces

Directions

  1. Wash and peel yams or sweet potatoes; cut into 1-inch cubes. In a large covered saucepan, cook yams in enough boiling water to cover about 10 minutes or until tender. Drain.
  2. Meanwhile, in a small saucepan, combine cornstarch, salt, and allspice. Stir in apple juice, raisins, and lemon juice; cook and stir over medium heat until thickened and bubbly. Cook and stir for 2 minutes more. Gently stir in pears and yams; heat through. Serve immediately. Makes 4 side-dish servings.

From the Test Kitchen

You can cook the potatoes and the sauce ahead and chill them separately. Stir the pears and cooked potatoes into the sauce before serving, and heat through. Be careful not to overcook as the potatoes may fall apart.
