Paleo Apple Sweet Potato Spread
This is how my evening went:
10.00pm: Washing dishes and thinking: “the crockpot is sitting empty…what can I cook in it tonight? Chicken? Nah, sweet potatoes? Hmmmm. With what though?”
10.05pm: Looking to see if there are any other dirty plates on the counter and thinking: “must finish off all those honey crisp apples soon.”
10.10pm: Light-bulb going off (figuratively) and thinking: “apple butter with sweet potatoes!”
10.20pm: Peeling apples and sweet potatoes and chopping them up.
10.30pm: Placing apples and sweet potatoes into crockpot along with cinnamon, pure chocolate powder, ground nutmeg, ginger powder, and ground cloves. Mixing together.
10.35pm: Setting crockpot to low temperature for 10 hours and then relaxing in massage chair with a kombucha!

Then the next morning, I used an immersion blender to puree the mixture in the crockpot (you can pour the mixture into blender to puree instead).

This goes especially well with slices of paleo apple pie!

    How long does it keep?

      Mona, I kept it for a week in the fridge, but it can last for several months in the freezer. You can also make it last longer by putting in a bit of honey or lemon juice or by canning it.

    What do you use with the spread? It looks tempting but I don’t know what to do with it once its made. Thanks!

      Amanda, it goes well spread on Paleo bread, you can dip apple slices in it. It’s often good as a sort of sauce to go with a dessert – I found it went really well with the paleo apple pie.

    Did you cook/bake the sweet potatoes first? Or did you put them
    in raw together? Thanks!

    Where does the pure chocolate powder come in? I saw it in your description but not the recipe.

      Hi Jessie – thanks for pointing that out. It goes into the ingredients – I’ve corrected the typo.
