Mashed Sweet Potatoes

I had a ginormous sweet potato sitting around my kitchen for a week.  Today I decided to do something with it, so I…

~cut it up into 1 ‘ cubes
~ put them in a pan with enough water to cover, and boiled until tender, about 10 minutes.
~added 3 tbls maple syrup
~added a splash of whole milk
~added 2 tbls butter
~added 1/2 tsp cinnamon
~added 1/2 tsp salt
~whipped them until smooth w/ my stick hand blender

…and was very happy with the result.  The maple syrup brought the sweetness out of the potato without making it overly sweet.  The salt and cinnamon should be added to taste.  The milk is to help make them creamy when whipping.  The size of the potato I used was at least 2 maybe 3 normal size sweet potatoes…it was huge!

    Scrumptious, we normally toss them in the oven to bake while we are doing other things… this is a whole extra dimension! Have a good day!!!

    Love sweet potatoes.

    Earlier this week I roasted acorn squash brushed with melted butter and olive oil. I added some salt, pepper, and parsley. When it was done, I added feta and sunflower seeds. Bliss!
