Thank you DuClaw Brewing for sponsoring this post and sending me the DuClaw 865cc Coffee Stout. All opinions and the sweet potato recipe are my own.
Welcome to the November edition of “Cooking with Beer”! Each month DuClaw Brewing sends me a beer and a friend and I create a recipe. It’s a fun time to think outside the box and try a new beer and new food. This month’s beer is “865cc Coffee Stout”, an stout with an intense coffee flavor from the addition of cold steeped, Cafe Racer XXX 865cc coffee which is roasted in Baltimore, MD. I have to confess that this is one of my favorite beers that I’ve had from DuClaw. I kind of didn’t want to cook with it or share it. If you love coffee, you want to try this beer.
Since Thanksgiving is just around the corner, I wanted a recipe that could hold it’s own with a turkey and all the assorted sides. I thought about making some sort of dessert, but last month I made a chocolate mousse. I wanted to try something different. So, a Thanksgiving side it was! And what a side it is! It’s a grown up version of sweet potatoes with candied walnuts. I may have eaten the whole bowl that I used to take the pictures. My 15 year old even loved it and he doesn’t like walnuts OR sweet potatoes. Perhaps I did make a dessert after all…
