Three Sisters Farm Sweet Potato Gratin

November 02, 2015


Some of the sweet potatoes Three Sisters Farm grows are destined to become star characters in Jen’s decadent twist on the classic holiday staple: a sweet-spicy combination of tubers, heavy cream, chipotles in adobo and Gruyere.


Preheat oven to 375° F.

In blender or food processor combine cream, 2–3 chipotle peppers and 2–3 tablespoons of the adobo sauce and blend. Add salt and pepper and heat in a saucepan until it reaches a simmer.

Arrange slices in 9- by 13-inch baking dish or pie plate

Pour cream/pepper mixture over potatoes

Top with Gruyere.

Bake 40–45 minutes, until bubbly. Let sit 10 minutes before serving.

Sweet Potato Greens

Here’s what you can do with a bunch of fresh sweet potato greens:

Heat a little olive oil in a sauté pan, add the greens and stir around quickly, finish with salt, pepper and a squeeze of lemon juice (and even add a little grated lemon zest or chili flakes).
