Maple-Whipped Sweet Potatoes

Ingredients 4 lbs (2 Kg) sweet potatoes 4 tablespoons (60 mL) unsalted butter ¼ cup (60 mL) pure maple syrup Coarse salt and ground pepper Directions Preheat oven to 400ºF. Pierce sweet potatoes all over with a knife. Place on middle oven rack. Bake until very tender when pierced with a knife, around 1 hour. When cool enough to handle, cut sweet potatoes in half. Then with a spoon, scoop out flesh into a food processor – you can discard the skins. Add butter and syrup; process until smooth. Season with salt and pepper.
