Fall is my favorite season for cooking. Although sweet potatoes are available year round, they just taste better in the fall. They are better for you than regular potatoes, so that’s a plus! Plan on about 1 medium sized potato per person.
2 medium sweet potatoes (any variety)
2-3 Tablespoons butter
½ teaspoon ground cinnamon, optional
salt & pepper
Peel the potatoes and chop them into small pieces. Put them in a large pot and pour in enough cold water to completely cover the potatoes. Bring to a boil, reduce heat slightly and boil until tender, about 12-15 minutes.
Mash with a potato masher or run through a food mill. Stir in the butter and cinnamon. Season with salt and pepper to taste.
