Sweet Potato and Apple Tart

This sweet potato and apple tart is the gold mine of desserts for Paleo-inclined folks like me. Finding something to satisfy your sweet tooth on a Paleo diet can be challenging. I had to say goodbye to late night binging on brownies and other sugar treats. However, there is a magic little thing called maple syrup.  While it may not be that different from refined sugar, at least my mind thinks it is. And that’s what counts…right? This recipe is not fully Paleo, but it’s close enough for me.

Anyway, Ginny put her creative skills to the cutting board again and came up with this wonderful sweet potato and apple tart. I was a bit skeptical at first. Mixing sweet potatoes and apples is like asking an orangutan to ride a tricycle…it can be done, but it’s not pretty. Well, I was wrong. I did not think the two would blend well, but it was soooo wrong.

Ginny used the mandolin to slice the sweet potato and apples. After that, she played me a Led Zeppelin tune on it that made me swoon….hehehe. But seriously folks, this tool gives you uniform thickness in your slices. That’s important so they cook the same amount. Look at the beautiful results. This is the unicorn of fruit arrangements.

It’s like a flower of taste smiling at you!

Winter may be extra harsh if the last few weeks are any indication. We’ve already had some freezing temperatures and precipitation. If you don’t hear from me after this post, it’s because I froze to death on the Ozark Highlands Trail. I agreed to go on an overnight backpacking trip Saturday with a few friends and it’s going to be really cold. Freezing rain and 20 degrees are in the forecast. As Seal sang, “No we’re never gonna survive unless…we are a little crazy.”

Back to the tart, you could serve this as dessert or as side dish with something savory like a rotisserie chicken or blackened salmon. And don’t forget to top it with some toasted pecans. If you are having an argument with a spouse, relative or pet, a few servings of this tart will set things straight.
