Apple season is upon us. While there are a plethora of pie, tart, and bread recipes made from these red beauties, I decided to try something a little different: APPLE-SWEET POTATO HASH. The combination of apples, sweet potatoes, and onions works surprisingly well.
Besides being tasty, it’s extremely easy and fast to make. Just chop and fry!
Note: Choose an apple variety that’s crisp and tangy such as Gala, Fuji, or Honey Crisp.
APPLE-SWEET POTATO HASH – makes about 4 cups
- 1/2 T vegetable oil
- 1 large onion, sliced
- 1 large sweet potato, unpeeled and cubed into 1/2″ pieces
- 2 apples (I use Gala), unpeeled and cubed into 1/2″ pieces
- 1/2 tsp cinnamon
- 1 tsp salt
- 1/4 tsp dried dill
- 1 tsp lemon juice
In a 12″ nonstick skillet (you can probably use cast iron, although I haven’t tried that since my cast iron skillet is only 10″), heat oil over medium/high. Add in onions and sweet potato. Sauté 3 minutes, uncovered, stirring now and then. Cover, decrease heat to low, and cook for 8 minutes. Check to see if sweet potato is easily pierced by a sharp knife. If not, cover and let cook a little longer. When cooked, add in apples, cinnamon, salt, and dill. Increase heat to medium/high and sauté until browned, stirring now and then. Add in lemon juice. Adjust seasoning, if needed.
