Bring to a boil and cook 8 minutes until tender. Drain and mash in a bowl. Add the apples, lemon juice, brown sugar, sour cream, egg, breacrumbs, walnuts, cinnamon and cloves. Stir until smooth and thick. Mixture should hold together well on the end of a spoon. Using a tablespoon or small ice cream scoop dipped in water, scoop up sweet potato mixture and place dollops on a large plate or pan sprayed lightly with oil. Flatten the mounds slightly. Heat a large nonstick skillet brushed with vegetable oil or canola oil over medium-high heat. Add a few of the sweet potato patties at a time, being careful not to crowd the pan. Cook the latkes 3 to 4 minutes on one side until browned. Turn and brown on the second side. Repeat until all batter is cooked.
