Superb Sweet Potatoes

  Wash the unpeeled sweet potatoes. Cook in a large saucepan in the water with 1 teaspoon salt for about 20 minutes until tender but not mushy. Drain, peel, and mash to a puree. This may be done in a food processor, blender, or electric mixer. Add the remaining salt, butter, pepper and milk. for white sweet potatoes, which are drier, you will need 1/2 cup milk, but if you use the moist orange type, often sold as yams, (which they are not, just another type of sweet potato) use only 1/4 cup. Beat until smooth and fluffy. Whip the chilled cream in a chilled bowl (this helps it to thicken faster). Fold half of the whipped cream gently into the potato mixture, and put in a buttered 1-2-quart casserole. Top with the rest of the cream and sprinkle with the brown sugar. Bake in a preheated 375 F. oven for 20-25 minutes until golden brown.

Serves 4-6

2 pounds (about 6 medium) sweet potatoes, orange, yellow, or white
4 cups water
2 t. salt
2 T. butter
freshly ground black pepper to taste
1/4-1/2 cup scalded milk, depending on type of sweet potatoes used
1 cup heavy cream
1/4 c. brown sugar
