Ingredients 

2 ¾ cups apricot nectar

2 Tbl sugar

salt and pepper

pinch of allspice

3 small yams (1 ½ lbs)

2 sweet potatoes (1 lb)

6 Tbl heavy cream, plus extra for drizzling

1 Tbl unsalted butter

3 Tbl minced fresh chives

 

Directions

Heat oven to 400 degrees. Butter an 8 x 8 baking dish. In a large frying or sauté pan, combine apricot nectar, sugar, ¾ tsp salt, 1/8 tsp pepper and allspice, and stir to blend. Peel one yam and cut crosswise into rounds ¼-inch thick. Add to pan and stir to coat. Repeat with remaining yams and potatoes. Bring mixture to a boil over medium heat. Reduce heat, cover and simmer until veggies begin to soften, about 8 minutes. Remove from heat. Using a slotted spoon, transfer veggies to prepared dish. Set aside. Return  liquid in the pan to a medium-high heat. Add cream. Boil, stirring occasionally, to reduce liquid to 1-½ cups, about 10 minutes. Pour liquid over yams and potatoes. Dot surface with bits of butter. Bake kugel uncovered until veggies are very tender, top is deep brown in places, and liquid is almost absorbed, about one hour. Remove from the oven and let stand for 15 minutes. Serve, drizzled with cream and sprinkled with chives.
