Ingredients

2 each  sweet potatoes
1 1/2 cup  apple juice
0 1/4 cup  packed golden brown sugar
2 tbsp  unsalted butter
0 1/2 tsp  ground nutmeg
0 1/2 tsp  ground allspice
0 1/2 cup  Cranberries, dried
1 pinch  salt and pepper
Directions
  1. Cook sweet potatoes in a large pot of boiling water until halfway cooked, (a knife inserted into center will encounter resistance), about 5 minutes. Drain and cool. (This step can be done 1 day ahead just cover and refrigerate until next step.)
  2. Combine cider, sugar, butter, nutmeg, and allspice in a large non stick skillet over medium high heat. Bring to a boil, stirring often.
  3. Add potatoes and reduce heat so liquid is simmering. Cook 5 minutes, stirring occasionally.
  4. Add cranberries and continue cooking until liquid is reduced to a syrupy glaze and potatoes are tender, about 10 minutes. (If the glaze becomes very thick before potatoes become tender, thin it with a small amount of cider).
  5. When potatoes are tender, transfer to a serving bowl with a slotted spoon. Season to taste with salt and pepper. Pour remaining glaze over sweet potatoes and serve.
