I love sweet potatoes just about any way. Candied are always a highlight at the Thanksgiving table. I think a sweet potato simply baked in its jacket until the sugars ooze out of the cuts then topped with butter, brown sugar, salt and pepper is very close to perfect. But I really like this recipe for its fluffy orange flavor.
Orange Whipped Sweet Potatoes
adapted from Taste of Home 2002 Book3 pounds sweet potatoes, scrubbed
1/3 to 2/3 cups orange juice
1/4 cup packed brown sugar
2 tablespoons butter
1/2 teaspoon salt (may need more)
pepper (I like lots)
1/4 teaspoon ground nutmeg
Bake scrubbed sweet potatoes in 400 degree oven for about 45 minutes until soft. Scoop out of skins when cool enough to handle.
In large mixing bowl, mash potatoes with all the ingredients until fluffy.
Sprinkle with snipped parsley
