This can be prepared a day ahead, covered and refrigerated. Reheat in 350 degree oven for about 30 minutes.
- 5 pounds sweet potatoes
- 1/4 cup butter
- 3 tablespoons honey
- 2 teaspoons grated fresh ginger
- Salt and pepper, to taste
- Candied ginger, optional for garnish
Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Pierce each sweet potato several times with a fork and place on a foil lined baking dish. Bake about 45 minutes or until very soft. Let stand until cool enough to handle, then cut in half and scoop out pulp. Place in a large bowl, add remaining ingredients except candied ginger and mash with a potato masher until smooth. Put into a buttered casserole dish suitable for serving. Reheat at 350 degrees until heated through. If desired, garnish with slivered candied ginger.
