RECIPE: Puree of Sweet Potatoes


Mashed Sweet Potatoes

2 pounds Sweet Potatoes
½ cup milk
4 tablespoons butter, unsalted

Preheat oven to 400 degrees Fahrenheit. Scrub the skin of the potatoes clean. Prick the skin all over the potato. Place a layer of tinfoil on a baking sheet then put potatoes on top. The potatoes may ooze while baking and it is much easier to throw out the tinfoil than clean the sticky mess off the baking sheet. Bake for 45-65 minutes, depending on size, until soft. Take out of the oven and let cool slightly. In a small saucepan, pour in the milk and butter. Heat over medium until the butter melts. Scrape the potato out of the skin into a pan if going to re-heat or into a bowl if not. Stir butter mixture into the potatoes and mash until smooth. Season with salt and pepper. Serves 4 to 6.
