Yield: 3 servings
Ingredients
  • 1 very large (13 oz) sweet potato, unpeeled, washed and dried
  • 2 tablespoons unsalted butter
  • 2 tablespoons whole milk
  • 1 tablespoon honey
  • ⅛ teaspoon kosher salt
  • ⅛ teaspoon cinnamon
Instructions
  1. Pierce the sweet potato with a fork on both sides. Microwave on high, 3 minutes per side or until tender (they’re ready when the flesh is easily pierced with a fork). Let stand 5 minutes until cool enough to handle.
  2. Meanwhile, in a small saucepan over medium-low heat, heat the remaining ingredients, stirring, until warm but not hot. Don’t allow the mixture to boil.
  3. Use your fingers to peel the cooked sweet potato. Place it in a medium bowl. Mash well with a fork. Add the warm liquids gradually, whisking them in with a hand whisk. Keep whisking until very smooth, then serve.
Notes
If you can't find a large sweet potato, use two 7-oz sweet potatoes. Microwave time will be about the same.
