Plain baked sweet potatoes are great; maple mashed sweet potatoes are sublime. Serve with turkey dishes, along with cold apple or cranberry sauce.

Ingredients:

  • 4 medium-size sweet potatoes
  • 3/4 cup milk
  • 1 tablespoon butter
  • 2 tablespoons maple syrup
  • juice of 1/2 lemon
  • salt and freshly
  • ground pepper, to taste
  • ground cinnamon or nutmeg, for garnish

Instructions:

Preheat oven to 450 degrees F. Pierce the sweet potatoes two or three times with a fork. Arrange them on a baking sheet and bake for 45 minutes to 1 hour, until the flesh is tender. Slit the skin to let the steam escape.

Heat the milk, butter, and maple syrup in a large skillet or saute pan; do not boil. Scoop the sweet potato flesh into the same pan, then mash mixture together with a potato masher. Mash in the lemon juice and salt and pepper, to taste; the texture should be slightly lumpy but still mashed. Serve right from the pan or transfer to a serving dish. Dust the top with cinnamon or nutmeg, and serve at once.
