    My Private Note



    Units: US | Metric

    • 1 1/2 lbs boniato, peeled and cubed in 1/2-inch cubes (Caribbean sweet potato)
    • 4 tablespoons butter
    • 1/2 cup heavy cream
    • 1/4 teaspoon nutmeg, freshly grated (or more to taste)
    • salt and pepper (to taste)


    1. 1
      Place the boniato in a large pot with cold salted water to cover and slowly bring t a boil over medium-high heat. Reduce the heat to medium and gently simmer the boniato until very tender, about 10 minutes.
    2. 2
      Drain the boniato well and return to the pot. Mash with a potato masher or put through a ricer. Do not use a food processor to mash the boniato or it will taste gummy.
    3. 3
      Add the butter and cream and continue mashing to form a creamy puree. Season with nutmeg, salt and pepper to taste.

      A rich, simple, mashed potato dish. Boniato oxidizes very quickly when exposed to the air, so be sure to keep any cut edges covered in water.
