Quick and flavorful, these sweet potatoes go great with pork or ham, and I like them with lamb. A little maple syrup and orange juice jazz up these mashed sweet potatoes.

Boil or steam the sweet potatoes and then mash with the syrup and seasonings.

What You'll Need

  • 2 1/2 to 3 pounds sweet potatoes
  • 1/4 cup maple syrup, dark or grade B if possible
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/8 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
  • 2 tablespoons fresh orange juice
  • 2 tablespoons butter
