Mashed Sweet Potatoes
Sweet potatoes are nature's candy. I love them fixed any way. This is one of the great ones. Personally, I only add about 1/4 cup of the syrup, because, as I said, they are already nature's candy and sweet enough. But I love the mapley taste.
|6||sweet potatoes, peeled and cubed|
|3/4 cup||milk (more or less for texture)|
|3/4 cup||real maple syrup (more or less to taste)|
Bring a large pot of salted water to a boil. Add potatoes and cook until tender, 20 to 30 minutes.
With an electric mixer on low, blend potatoes, slowly adding milk, about 1/2 a cup at a time. Use more or less to achieve desired texture. Add butter and maple syrup to taste. Blend until smooth. Serve warm.
