Ingredients

  • medium sweet potatoes (2 pounds), peeled and diced into 2-inch cubes
  • 3  Tablespoons  freshly squeezed orange juice
  • 3  Tablespoons  pure maple syrup, preferably Grade B
  • 1  Tablespoon  fresh ginger, peeled and grated on a Microplane
  • 3  Tablespoons  unsalted butter
  • freshly ground black pepper, to taste
  • kosher salt, to taste

Directions

Place the potatoes in a small pot filled halfway with cool water.

Bring the water to a boil over high heat. Reduce the heat to low and simmer until the potatoes are easily pierced with the tip of a knife, then drain well.

Add the drained potatoes to a food processor with a metal blade attachment (for a super smooth texture) or large bowl (for a more rustic texture).

Process in the food processor or mash with a potato masher, then add the remaining ingredients and continue processing or mashing. Season to taste with salt and pepper.

Cover with aluminum foil until ready to serve.

Maple Shopping Tip

Be sure to purchase the correct flour a recipe calls for – flours differ in gluten or protein content, making each suited for specific tasks.

Maple Cooking Tip

Insert a toothpick into the center of cakes, bar cookies, and quick breads to test for doneness – it should come out clean or only have a few crumbs clinging to it.
