  • 1 Teaspoon McCormick® Ground Ginger
  • 1/4 Teaspoon Sea Salt from McCormick® Sea Salt Grinder

Pierce each sweet potato twice with fork so excess steam can escape while cooking.

Microwave on HIGH 5 to 10 minutes or until tender, turning over halfway through cooking.

Let stand 5 minutes or until cool enough to handle.

Remove skin from the sweet potatoes.

Place sweet potatoes and remaining ingredients in large bowl.

Mash until smooth and well blended.
