This goes really good with your Christmas ham dinner.
6 large sweet potatoes
1 can (20 ounce) pineapple chunks
1 tablespoon plus 2 teaspoons cornstarch
2 tablespoons dark brown sugar
1 cup orange juice
1 can (11 ounce) mandarin oranges, drained
1 cup dried cranberries
Scrub and pierce sweet potatoes. Bake at 400 for 45-50 minutes or just until tender. When cool enough to handle peel and cut into 1/2 inch slices. Place on a greased 13x9 inch baking dish.
Drain pineapple, reserving liquids. In a small saucepan, combine cornstarch and brown sugar. Gradually stir in orange juice and reserved pineapple juice. Bring to a boil; cook and stir for 2 minutes or until thickened. Add the pineapple, oranges and cranberries; heat through.
Pour sauce over sweet potatoes. Bake, uncovered at 350 degrees for 35-40 minutes or until bubbly.
Yield: 8 servings.
