Slow Cooker Mashed Sweet Potatoes

This is a FANTASTIC way to prepare your sweet potatoes, especially on Thanksgiving.  While you focus on the Turkey and other side dishes, your sweet potatoes can be cooking in the crockpot!
  1. Peel and cut sweet potatoes and place them in the slow cooker.
  2. Add 1/2 cup of the apple juice as well as the spices.
  3. Cook on low for 4-5 hours, until the potatoes are tender.
  4. Once potatoes are fully cooked, use a hand blender to mix the sweet potatoes inside the slow cooker.   While doing so, add the other 1/2 cup of juice.  You can season with more cinnamon and nutmeg.  If you prefer a sweeter taste, you can mix a dab of honey or maple syrup as well. 
  5. Top with pecans.
  6. Serve and enjoy!
