  • 4 pounds orange-fleshed sweet potatoes peeled, and cut into 1" cubes

  • 1/4 cup maple syrup
  • 5 tablespoons unsalted butter
  • Freshly-ground white pepper to taste

Step 1

In a large saucepan over medium heat, combine the sweet potatoes, the 2 teaspoon salt and water to cover the potatoes by 2 inches. Bring to a boil and cook until the potatoes are tender when pierced with a knife, about 20 minutes. Drain in a colander and transfer to a large bowl. Using a potato masher, mash the sweet potatoes well.

In a small saucepan over medium heat, warm the half-and-half and maple syrup until hot. Remove from the heat. Add 4 tablespoons (1/2 stick) of the butter to the sweet potatoes, then slowly pour in the hot half-and-half mixture while stirring with a wooden spoon. Continue to stir until the potatoes are light and creamy. Season with salt and white pepper.

Transfer the sweet potatoes to a warmed serving bowl and top with the remaining 1 tablespoon butter. Serve immediately.

This recipe yields 8 to 10 servings.
