Now, getting back to our easy ‘Honey Roasted Sweet Potatoes and Cranberries’ which is one recipe that I’ve been making every year for more than a decade.

Then we saute it butter along with McCormick® Ginger & McCormick® Cinnamon and some salt.

Once the sweet potatoes are cooked, we add the fresh orange juice (optional), frozen cranberries and give everything a quick stir.

Then let this mixture cook for 2-3 minutes and then add the roasted nuts, honey and mix everything.
