Sweet Potato and Apple Bake

A sweet potato and apple bake is a wonderful side to a roast or pork. Fresh apples and sweet potatoes come into season in the fall, which makes autumn the perfect time to try out this recipe. Maple syrup adds a touch of dessert-like sweetness, while lemon zest balances it out with a bit of tang. The sweet potato and apple bake can be made on the grill or on the stovetop; we like to make it outside during the September and move it to the stove once the October chill rolls in!
