~cut it up into 1 ' cubes
~ put them in a pan with enough water to cover, and boiled until tender, about 10 minutes.
~added 3 tbls maple syrup
~added a splash of whole milk
~added 2 tbls butter
~added 1/2 tsp cinnamon
~added 1/2 tsp salt
~whipped them until smooth w/ my stick hand blender
...and was very happy with the result. The maple syrup brought the sweetness out of the potato without making it overly sweet. The salt and cinnamon should be added to taste. The milk is to help make them creamy when whipping. The size of the potato I used was at least 2 maybe 3 normal size sweet potatoes...it was huge!
