I love sweet potatoes and they are a frequent in my dinner rotation. I've never included orange zest with them before but the flavors balanced together very nicely. I like adding cinnamon to my sweet potatoes and tried this recipe both with and without and personally ended up adding cinnamon to the final dish.


If you like potato skins, I highly recommend keeping some of them in the mix as they are not only delicious but hold many of the nutritional properties found in potatoes. Overall this is a great recipe. If you're on a time crunch you can cut your sweet potatoes into small pieces as they bake for faster cooking.

Makes 8 to 10 servings

Preparation Time: 5 Minutes

Cook Time: 2 Hours



Ingredients:

*5 large sweet potatoes

*2 sticks unsalted butter, melted

*2 tablespoons fresh orange zest

*1/2 cup maple syrup or honey

*Salt, to taste


Preparation:

*Preheat oven at 375F.

*Wrap whole sweet potatoes individually in heavy-duty aluminum foil.

*Place in a large baking dish and bake for 1 hour or until soft and tender in the middle. (Mine ended up taking close to two hours for some reason, I finally cut them up into little pieces so they would cook faster.)

*Take out of the oven, unwrap, cut down the middle lengthwise and let cool for 10 minutes.

*Grab a large mixing bowl and scrape all the softened sweet potato pulp into a bowl. (I like the texture of potato skin so I ripped some up and added it in)

*Add remaining ingredients and whisk vigorously until nicely pureed and smooth.
