Sweet Potatoes and Apples

1 1/2 pounds sweet potatoes
3 York or Stayman apples, unpeeled, cored and sliced
3/4 cup orange juice
3/4 tsp. grated fresh ginger
1/2 tsp. cinnamon
1/4 tsp. allspice
1/4 tsp. nutmeg

In a medium saucepan, cook unpeeled potatoes in boiling water for 25 minutes. In a medium skillet, over high heat, heat apples and orange juice with ginger, cinnamon, allspice and nutmeg. Cover and cook until apples soften, 3 to 5 minutes. Uncover and reduce heat; simmer apples a few minutes longer. Peel and slice cooked sweet potatoes and add to apple mixture. Mix gently and heat thoroughly. Makes 6 servings.
