Cranberry Pear Sweet Potatoes

Cranberry Pear Sweet Potatoes

These sweet potatoes develop a delicious caramelized crust when seared, the sweetness from the potato combined with the tangy Cranberry Pear Balsamic is a powerful flavour combination. This nutrient rich side pairs especially well with roasted pork. 


4 medium sweet potatoes (carrots or cubed squash work well too) peeled and each cut lengthwise into 8 wedges
1/3 cup of Glasses & Grapes Cranberry Pear Balsamic Vinegar
1 tbsp of Glasses & Grapes House Blend EVOO
1/2 tsp Maldon Flaked Sea Salt or other kosher salt

Fresh Thyme


Par steam your veg or sous vide to a still firm doneness.

In a large bowl toss to liberally coat the sweet potato wedges (or carrots/squash) with the Cranberry Pear Balsamic.

Heat EVOO in a heavy pan. Sprinkle with sea salt and high heat sear until just tender and the balsamic has caramelized. Sprinkle with fresh thyme. Enjoy!

** Tip, don't over do it, your veg will continue to cook a bit once removed from the heat, you want a bit of firmness remaining.
