3 large sweet potatoes (about 3 1/2 pounds)
1 cup shredded carrot
1 cup fresh orange juice (about 2 oranges)
1/8 teaspoon ground ginger
2 tablespoons butter or stick margarine
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 (15 1/4-ounce) can crushed pineapple in juice, drained


Preheat oven to 350°.

Place the sweet potatoes on a baking sheet. Bake at 350° for 1 hour and 25 minutes or until potatoes are tender. Cool slightly; peel.

Combine carrot, orange juice, and ginger in a small saucepan. Bring to a boil; reduce heat, and simmer for 15 minutes. Drain the carrot mixture in a colander over a bowl, reserving 3/4 cup cooking liquid. Combine potato and carrot mixture, and mash. Stir in 3/4 cup cooking liquid, butter, salt, and pineapple.
