This dish, full of delicious spices, makes a great side dish at any holiday dinner!
Preheat oven to 400°F. Line a baking sheet or large roasting pan with parchment paper.
Peel sweet potatoes, and cut into 1-inch chunks. In a large bowl, toss sweet potatoes with balsamic vinegar, cinnamon, ginger, nutmeg and cloves.
Transfer sweet potatoes to baking sheet with a slotted spoon. (Set aside bowl with remaining vinegar spice mixture for use with pears.)
Bake about 30 minutes.
Meanwhile, core pears and cut into 1-inch chunks. Place pears in bowl with reserved balsamic vinegar and spice mixture; toss until evenly coated. Add pears to baking sheet with potatoes and continue to bake until pears are golden and potatoes are fork-tender, about 25 minutes.
