Roasted sweet potatoes have a lush, tender texture and concentrated flavor. When paired with maple syrup and apples, they make a deliciously sweet side that works with anything from pan-seared steak to roasted turkey.
Use a firm, tart Granny Smith apple or try a crisp, slightly sweeter Pink Lady—it’s a cross between a Golden Delicious and a Lady Williams.

We were a little disappointed - not nearly enough apple for the - large - chunks of sweet potato, and the sage got rather lost too. Will certainly make again, but with adjustments.
Very good recipe. I added candied pecans and a bit of chopped fresh sage as a garnish. In my opinion, the crunch of the pecans is critical to elevating this to 5 stars. The potatoes took a bit longer to roast for me. Don't cook the apples too long. Served with pork loin roasted with garlic and rosemary, green salad and a Pinot noir. Fantastic meal worthy of Sunday night.
