Donna’s Sweet Potatoes and Cranberries

This is a great combination of flavors and it is very attractive.

1 can (1-1/2 pounds) sweet potatoes 1-1/2 cups fresh cranberries 1/4 cup butter or margarine 1/2 cup brown sugar

Topping – optional

2 tablespoons chopped pecans or walnuts 2 tablespoons quick-cooking oats 2 tablespoons flour 2 tablespoons brown sugar 2 tablespoons cold butter or margarine

Butter a 1 quart baking dish. Place sweet potatoes in the dish. Cut into 2 inch chunks. In a small saucepan, combine cranberries, butter, and 1/2 cup brown sugar. Bring to a boil while stirring. Boil gently for 3 – 5 minutes or until cranberries have popped open. Pour over sweet potatoes. If a topping is desired, combine all topping ingredients in a small bowl. Using a knife, cut butter into dry ingredients until mixture is crumbly. Sprinkle over potatoes and cranberries. Cover and refrigerate until ready to bake.

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Bake uncovered for 25 – 35 minutes or until heated through and topping is lightly brown.
