We love mashed sweet potatoes. Typically, we just use a bit of butter, spice and molasses or sorghum. But we had a bit of pineapple leftover after making sauce for the cod and took a different approach this time. The results were delicious and quite bright.
Mashed Sweet Potatoes with Pineapple
- 2 large sweet potatoes
- 3/4 cup pureed pineapple
- 1 tablespoon butter
- 2 tbsp brown sugar
- 1/4 tsp ground cloves
- 1/4 tsp ground nutmeg
- 1/4 tsp cinnamon
- salt to taste
Prick sweet potatoes with fork and bake at 375 until tender, about an hour. Let cool slightly. Skin and place flesh in a large bowl. Mash with butter. Stir in pineapple and spices. Place in a baking dish and cook until hot, about 10 minutes.
NOTE: This will be our last pineapple recipe for a little while honest! But while we’re at it, here are some more great ones. Check out this fresh pineapple upside down cake from Swellkid and this pork tenderloin with grilled pineapple salsa from Sweet Caroline’s Cooking. Hey and come to think of it we made a nice grilled pineapple salsa last year.
