Apple & Pecan Stuffed Sweet Potatoes Recipe
Submitted by Sarah H.

4 medium sweet potatoes (about 8 ounces each)  
1/3 cup butter, cubed  
3 TB packed brown sugar  
1/4 tsp cinnamon
1/2 teaspoon grated orange peel  
1 medium apple, chopped  
1/4 cup Pecans, chopped 

Scrub potatoes; pierce several times with a fork. 
Place on a large foil-lined baking pan. 
Bake at 400* for 45-60 minutes or until tender.  
When cool enough to handle, cut off a thin slice from the top of each potato; discard. 
Scoop out pulp, leaving 1/4-in. thick shells; transfer to a large bowl. 
Mash pulp with butter, adding brown sugar and orange peel. 
Fold in apple and pecans.  
Spoon into potato shells. 
Return to baking pan. 
Bake 15-20 minutes longer or until heated through. 



Fruit and Nut Cranberry Sauce
Submitted by Jolynn Payne

1 can mandarin oranges drained and cut the fruit in two  
1 can of pinapple tidbits drained  
1 cup of pecans  
2 cans whole cranberry sauce    

Mix together and chill. 
Jolynn says: This is an easy idea that I do every year to spruce up the canned sauce, and it goes great on leftover turkey sandwiches!
