Mashed Candied Sweets
- 5 sweet potatoes (about 8 oz each) , peeled
- ¾ cup fresh orange juice (from 1 or 2 oranges)
- ½ cup pure maple syrup
- 3 Tbsp unsalted butter
- 1 tsp ground ginger
- Salt, to taste
- Miniature marshmallows, optional
Cut potatoes into 1-inch pieces; cook in boiling salted water until very tender, about 15 minutes. Drain well and remove to a large bowl. While potatoes are hot, mash with the remaining ingredients (except marshmallows).
To serve, spoon the potatoes into an oven-to-table dish and dot with marshmallows, if desired. Reheat in a 350°F oven until warmed through, about 15 to 20 minutes.
