How to make it

  • Peel sweet potatoes and cut into eighths.
  • Place in a pot and cover with cold water.
  • Add the 2 teaspoons salt and granulated sugar.
  • Bring to boil, reduce heat and simmer for about 15 minutes or until very tender. Potatoes should mash easily when pressed with a fork.
  • Drain potatoes and return to pan over very low heat.
  • Return to burner until all moisture has evaporated, about 2 minutes.
  • Remove from heat. Rice or mash until very smooth.
  • Stir in brown sugar. Combine the 1/2 teaspoon salt, pepper, cinnamon and nutmeg in a small bowl; stir into potatoes.
  • Place cream and butter in a saucepan. Heat until butter melts. Stir into potatoes. Stir in the corn syrup and bourbon.
  • Serves 8 to 10.
  • Note: Potatoes may be made up to a day in advance and reheated in a saucepan with an additional 1/4 cup cream.

    me either, the peel just comes right off after boiling, just be careful not to burn your fingers,

    Great recipe!! I love yams. SO will use yams instead. Now I'm torn between two great recipes to make for Thanksgiving. Oh the horror.

    This sounds good. Will have to try. I do not peel my potatoes until after I have boiled them. Much easier.
