A great simple sweet potato dish.
- 2 1⁄2 lbs sweet potatoes (about 3 med)
- 4 cups apple cider
- 1⁄4 cup minced peeled fresh ginger
- 2 tablespoons butter
- Preheat oven to 400 deg. Roast the potatoes until quite tender, about an hour. Let cool. Peel the potatoes and cut into large chunks. Transfer to food processer.
- Bring the cider to a boil in a med heavy saucepan over high heat. Reduce the heat to med-low and simmer until the cider is reduced to 1 c, about 30 minute Transfer the cider, ginger and butter to the food processor with the potatoes and process until very smooth.
I usually like to follow recipes right on down my first time making them, but I do have a hard time when it comes to peeling sweet potatoes, & didn't do that this time, either! Instead I cut them into bite-sized chunks, peel & all, & then mashed them by hand, leaving them a bit lumpy, which is exactly the way I like them! The combo of ginger & cider did a very nice number on this side dish, & we were very, very satisfied with the 'tatoes! Thanks much for sharing the recipe!
