Candied Sweet Potatoes and Apples

Prepare these candied vegetables a day ahead and chill them.  Reheat them just before serving. And please...look the other way when you put in the 2, yes 2, sticks of butter!!!

2 pounds sweet potatoes, peeled
1 cup firmly packed light brown sugar
1 cup butter or margarine
1/2 cup apple cider
1/4 tsp salt
1 tsp vanilla extract
3 lg. Braeburn or other cooking apples, cored and cut into 1/2' rings

Cut sweet potatoes in half crosswise.  Cook in boiling water to cover 10 min.  Drain and cool.  Cut crosswise into 1/2' rings.
Combine brown sugar and next 3 ingredients in a medium saucepan. Bring to boil; boil 10 min. Remove from heat; stir in vanilla.
Layer sweet potato and apple slices in a greased 9x13 baking dish.  Pour glaze over slices.
Baked uncovered, at 400 degrees for 1 hour or until potatoes are candied and glaze is thickened, basting with glaze after 30 min.
10 servings.
