    Babs in Toyland's Note:

    This is a savory sweet potato dish that is delicious and also very pretty with the orange sweet potatoes and the green leeks spread around the edges. Yummy. I think this was from the Atlanta Journal Constitution a long time ago.

      Scrub the sweet potatoes under cold running water. Cutn the potatoes into thirds or quarters and put them in a large pot with enough cold water to cover them. Remove the potatoes and bring the water to a boil. Add the potatoes, return to a boil, cover and reduce heat to medium. Cook about 20 - 25 minutes until you can pierce them easily with a fork.
    2. 2
      Split leeks lengthwise and wash them under cold running water, root end up. Bending back the leaves to get all the dirt that is clinging to the inner layers. Trim off roots and slice them thinly crosswise.
    3. 3
      Peel the sweet potatoes. Whip the potatoes with the cream, bourbon, a few grinds of nutmeg, lemon zest and seasonings.
