3 tablespoons milk or light cream 5 medium sweet potatoes 4 tablespoons butter, softened 3 tablespoons brown sugar 1/2 teaspoon salt 1/8 teaspoon ground cinnamon 1/8 teaspoon ground nutmeg 1/8 teaspoon ground cloves
Milk or cream must be at room temperature.
Peel the sweet potatoes and cut into large chunks. Put them in a pan with enough salted water to cover. Bring them to a boil. Reduce heat and boil, covered, about 25 minutes or until very tender. Drain, transfer potatoes to a large mixing bowl.
Add the butter, brown sugar, salt, and spices to the potatoes. Partially mash with a hand masher. Add 2 tbsp of the milk, mashing a bit more, until blended but still lumpy. Add a little more milk, blend to desired consistency.
This is really good. I did use a little more brown sugar (1/3 cup) and omitted the cloves.

This recipe is fantastic! It is not too sweet, but sweet enough. I used allspice and put in 3 1/8 tsp. I would recommend this recipe. I was not a great lover of yams but with this recipe i found a new love.

Recipe looks like it will be good, there's no indication on how many potatoes to use.
