feastoffridays Texas Rib Candy, our newest product, is every bit as versatile as our Texas Pepper Jellies!

This recipe for Apple Cinnamon Sweet Potatoes is about to be your family’s favorite spicy side dish. Guaranteed.


4 large sweet potatoes, peeled and sliced applecinsm
1 large Granny Smith apple, peeled and cubed
1 1/2 cups Apple Cinnamon Rib Candy

What to do:

Put the sweet potatoes in a casserole dish and microwave them until tender.
Add the cubed apples and Rib Candy.
Return to microwave and cook for about eight minutes on 70% power until hot throughout. The apples can be tender or still crisp; let your family’s preferences decide. My kids like the apples crisp; they love the contrast with the tender sweet potatoes.

Put the bottle of Rib Candy on the table; sometimes, people want to add more. 🙂

This is one of the simplest side dishes imaginable! It’s also one of the most delicious you’ll ever put on our table.

We’re having it with our Thanksgiving dinner, too. I always make a sweet potato dish for the holiday, and this one is the best sweet potato side we’ve ever had on the table. So almost unbelievably simple.

The kids want me to make it with Apple Cherry Habanero Rib Candy next time, and add some halved cherries to the mix. Sounds good to me, too!
