Mashed Sweet PotatoesPrintable version of this recipe.
5 or 6 large sweet potatoes (peeled)
1 stick butter
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon pepper
1 tablespoon honey (or maple syrup, more or less to taste)
Peel potatoes and cut into quarters. Simmer in a large 3-4 quart pot of water with 2 tsp. salt added to water.
After 20 minutes or so, test potatoes with a fork to see if they are fully tender.
When cooked, drain water and return sweet potatoes to pan over still-warm burner (leave burner off or on very low heat).
Add butter to bottom of pan and stir until melted. Using a potato masher, mash the sweet potatoes with the butter, adding salt and pepper, to taste. Add honey to sweeten, stirring thoroughly.
Do not over sweeten the potatoes; the honey should be barely perceptible but it should enhance the natural sweetness of the potatoes.
Serve mounded with a pat of butter, if desired.
