Heat to a boil. reduce heat and simmer for 15 minutes or until the potato is tender. Add the maple syrup, white pepper, and reserved sweet potato.
  • Place one-third of the broth mixture into a blender or food processor. Cover and blend smooth. Pour mixture into a large bowl. Repeat blending process twice more with the remaining broth mixture. Of course an immersion blender may be used instead. Return all pureed mixture to the saucepan. Add the cream, if desired. Cook over medium heat until the mixture is hot. Season to taste.
