Yield: 12 Servings

Measure Ingredient
4 cups Apricot nectar
1 cup Chicken broth
6 tablespoons Pareve margarine
½ cup Chopped dried apricots
2 tablespoons Brown sugar
¼ cup Honey
1½ teaspoon Kosher salt
½ teaspoon Cinnamon
½ teaspoon Ground pepper
5 pounds Sweet potatoes; peeled and sliced 1/4" thick

Preheat oven to 400 degrees F. Generously grease a 13-by-9-inch baking dish. Combine nectar, broth, margarine, apricots, brown sugar, honey, salt, cinnamon and pepper into a large saucepan and heat until margarine melts. Add sweet potatoes and carrots; bring to a boil. Cover, cook until potatoes begin to soften, about 15 minutes.

Using slotted spoon, transfer potatoes and carrots to prepared dish.

Add prunes. Pour juices from pot over, press firmly to compact. Cover with heavy foil. Bake 30 minutes. Uncover and bake until potatoes are tender and beginning to brown on top, about 55 minutes. Let stand 15 minutes.
