When tossing the sweet potatoes, reserve the molasses mixture—then drizzle that over the sweet potatoes after they’re roasted. Stone-ground mustard refers to the method of using a stone to pulverize mustard seeds. But, if unable to find it, sharp mustard like Dijon will work, too. Ingredients 2 tablespoons olive oil 2 tablespoons molasses 2 tablespoons sliced jalapeño chile (from 1 small jalapeño) 1 tablespoon apple cider vinegar 1 teaspoon stone-ground mustard 3 medium-size sweet potatoes (about 2 lb.), each cut into 8 wedges 1 teaspoon kosher salt Directions Place a large rimmed baking sheet in an oven, and preheat to 425 F. (Do not remove baking sheet while oven preheats.) Whisk together oil, molasses, jalapeño, vinegar, and mustard. Toss mixture with sweet potato wedges; sprinkle with salt. Spread in an even layer on hot baking sheet, reserving any molasses mixture in bowl. Return to oven, and bake until potatoes are tender and slightly brown, 20 to 22 minutes, turning half way through baking. Drizzle with reserved molasses mixture, and serve hot.
