Nutrition per serving may change if servings are adjusted.
4 1/2 pounds sweet potatoes, (8 or 9 medium), peeled and cut into 1-inch pieces
1 teaspoon salt, plus more to taste
1 cup dried apricots, (3 ounces), cut into 1/4-inch slivers
1/2 cup raisins
1 cup boiling water
1 tablespoon canola oil
1 onion, finely chopped
2 teaspoons curry powder
Freshly ground pepper, to taste
Place sweet potatoes in a large pot and add enough cold water to cover by 1 inch. Add 1 teaspoon salt and bring to a boil over high heat. Reduce heat to medium and cook, uncovered, until tender but not mushy, 8 to 12 minutes. Drain well.
Meanwhile, combine apricots, raisins and boiling water in a small bowl; let sit until plumped, about 10 minutes.
Heat oil in a large wide pot over medium-high heat. Add onion and cook, stirring often, until softened, about 2 minutes. Add curry powder and cook, stirring, until fragrant, about 2 minutes. Add the cooked sweet potatoes, apricots, raisins and the fruit-soaking liquid. Season with salt and pepper. Stir gently over medium-low heat until warmed through.
Make Ahead Tip: The sweet potatoes will keep, covered, in the refrigerator for up to 2 days. Reheat on the stovetop or in the microwave.

I liked the mix of sweet potatoes, apricots and raisins, however, I had to add a LOT of spices to this dish to give it any flavor at all. My family said they would pass on this dish in the future.
Pros: unique flavors
Cons: too bland

Beats sweets with marshmallows
Made this to take to Thanksgiving last year and it went faster than the typical candied sweets. I received a lot of Kudos and will probably be bringing it every year from now on. It's easy to do and tasty. Since I also do indian cooking, I used Garam Masala instead of curry powder.
Pros: A unique taste for Thanksgiving
