We may be well past fall, but there’s still time to stock up on crisp apples and sweet potatoes during the holidays. We whipped together a super simple recipe that makes use of that delicious produce before they go out of season. 

All it requires is one tater and one apple—plus a little bit of playing with your food to make the final tasty treat.
