  2. Slip off skins. Beat potatoes with electric mixer on medium speed until no lumps remain. Add 2 tablespoons syrup, the butter, salt and nutmeg. Continue beating until potatoes are light and fluffy. Drizzle with additional syrup.

These were very, VERY sweet. I can't get American "sweet potatoes" so used kumeras instead. The added maple syrup only made a very sweet dish even sweeter...too sweet, really. I would happily make this again leaving off all of the maple syrup. We did, however, LOVE the nutmeg flavor. Sorry we couldn't give it a better review. Made for PAC 2008.
