Crock Pot Sweet Potatoes

It may seem strange to some, but I have 4 crock pots! I use them for easy meal prep, when it's hot and we don't want to use the oven and, of course, the holidays! Did you know, you can "bake" sweet potatoes in your crock pot? And it's SUPER EASY!!!

Ingredients
6 medium sized sweet potatoes (organic if available)
1 cup of Organic apple juice with no sugar added
1 tablespoon cinnamon
1 teaspoon nutmeg


Directions
Peel your potatoes and cut into chunks and place in crock pot
2) Add 1/2 of the apple juice, all of the cinnamon and nutmeg
3) Cover and cook on low for 6 hours or until potatoes are tender
4) Using a hand blender, blend the sweet potatoes inside the crock pot, adding a little apple juice at a time to make them the consistency that you like.
You can also add more cinnamon and nutmeg or even allspice or ground cloves.  For people who like a sweeter version, honey and/or maple syrup are delicious to add as well.
