Cider Mashed Sweet Potatoes
Apple cider enhances this simple sweet potato side dish.
Yield: 4 to 6 servings
- 2 pounds sweet potatoes (about 3 large)
- 1 cup apple cider
- 1 large Braeburn apple, peeled and coarsely chopped
- 1/4 cup butter, softened
- 1 tablespoon light brown sugar
- 3/4 teaspoon salt
- 1/4 teaspoon ground cinnamon
- Dash of nutmeg
- Pierce potatoes several times with a fork. Bake at 375° for 1 hour or until very soft; cool slightly.
- Meanwhile, bring apple cider and chopped apple to a boil in a small saucepan; reduce heat, and simmer 12 to 15 minutes or until apple is very soft (apple may begin to lose its shape). Drain apple, reserving cooking liquid. Return liquid to saucepan; simmer over medium heat for 6 to 8 more minutes or until thickened to the consistency of syrup.
- Cut potatoes in half lengthwise; scoop out pulp, and place in a large bowl. Discard shells. Add cooked apple to potatoes; mash with a potato masher until blended. Add butter and next 4 ingredients; continue mashing, adding reserved cooking liquid, until potatoes are desired texture. Serve hot.
