Ingredients

  • 4 Pounds sweet potatoes
  • 2 Tablespoons butter
  • 2 Tablespoons maple syrup
  • 1 Tablespoon chili powder
  • 2 Teaspoons cumin seeds, toasted and ground
  • 1 Teaspoon ginger
  • 1 Teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 Teaspoon ground black pepper

Directions

Preheat the oven to 350 degrees.

Pierce each sweet potato in several places with a fork. Place directly on the oven rack and roast until soft, 45-60 minutes. Transfer to a cutting board and let stand until cool enough to handle, about 10 minutes.

Slip off the skins and cut the sweet potatoes into 1-inch slices. Transfer to a large bowl and add the butter. Smash the sweet potatoes with a potato masher or fork until fluffy but some lumps remain. Add the remaining ingredients and stir to combine.

Spice Shopping Tip

Spices and dried herbs have a shelf life too, and lose potency over time. The rule of thumb is, if your spices are over two years old, it's time to buy some new ones.

Spice Cooking Tip

Toasting whole spices before using them intensifies their aroma and flavor.
