  • 1/2 cup orange juice
  • 1 tablespoon butter
  • 1-1/2 tablespoons brown sugar
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 3/4 cup fresh or frozen cranberries
  • 2 pounds sweet potatoes peeled and cut into 1-inch pieces
  • Salt and freshly ground black pepper to taste


  • Coat your slow cooker with nonstick spray. (I used my 2-Quart.) Place the orange juice, butter, brown sugar, cinnamon and cranberries in the slow cooker and stir to combine.
  • Cover and cook on HIGH while you prepare the sweet potatoes.
  • Add the potatoes and stir to combine.
  • Cover and turn the slow cooker to LOW.
  • Cook on LOW, until the sweet potatoes are very soft, 4 to 6 hours.
  • Mash the sweet potatoes well. If they seem too dry, stir in a little more orange juice to achieve desired consistency.
  • Add salt and pepper to taste.
  • Serve or hold in the slow cooker set to warm for up to one hour.
