Recipe - Bourbon Mashed Sweet Potatoes

This is a recipe for a really nice side dish. It works well with chicken and lots of other mains. Make sure to use a fairly decent quality bourbon.

Bourbon Mashed Sweet Potatoes

6 sweet potatoes (about 1kg)
60 ml double cream
2 tablespoons bourbon
2 tablespoons maple syrup
2 tablespoons butter
Salt and pepper to taste

Roast potatoes in skins in a 220c/gasmark 7 oven for 40 minutes. Remove the skin from the potatoes and discard. Place the potatoes in a large sauce pan. Over low heat, partially mash, then add the cream, bourbon, maple syrup and butter.

Continue to mash until all the ingredients are mixed and the potatoes are smooth but still with a lump or two. Add more butter if needed. Season with salt and freshly ground pepper.
