Honey Roasted Sweet Potatoes and Cranberries: it’s sweet, crisp, buttery and mixed with warm spices like cinnamon and ginger. I’ve also added some roasted pecans and pepitas to give it a nice crunch. Perfect as your Holiday meal sides/warm salad.
This is my favorite time of the year and that also means lots of prepping and cooking, which means my pantry/kitchen has to be stocked with essentials like my FAV goto McCormick® Extracts, Gravy, and Herbs & Spices.Especially for this ‘Honey Roasted Sweet Potatoes and Cranberries’ recipe, I’m using Holiday staples like McCormick® Ginger & McCormick® Cinnamon that I bought from my local Walmart.
Here’s another thing that is extremely important for me, finding most or all ingredients + related items for my recipes under one roof.
Hence, I prefer Walmart as it has everything from cooking essentials to decoration…you find everything at 1 place.
As soon as I got into the spices aisle at Walmart, ALL the McCormick® products were neatly and nicely stacked.

Process for Honey Roasted Sweet Potatoes and Cranberries
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.
“If you are pressed for time, you can even use frozen chopped sweet-potatoes in this recipe”
We start by peeling and chopping (small size) a sweet potato.
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.
Once everything is mixed and roasted together for another 3 minutes, turn off the heat.
Transfer the Honey Roasted Sweet Potatoes and Cranberries to a serving bowl or you can even serve it in the same skillet in which it’s cooked.
Add it to your Holiday feast menu and enjoy with friend and family. As mentioned above, this recipe works great as a side or warm salad.
I found ALL the required McCormick® Spices in the Spices Aisle of Walmart (as shown below).
To make this or any other Holiday recipes this season, do visit their local Walmart store to purchase a wide variety of McCormick® Extract, Herbs & Spices, or Gravy products.
