    Baked & mashed sweet potatoes, 6 cups (about 6 pounds of fresh sweet potatoes to start with)
    Fresh-squeezed orange juice, 1 cup (about four oranges' worth)
    Butter, unsalted, melted, 1/2 stick (1/4 cup)
    Fresh lemon juice, 1/4 cup
    Dark rum, 1/2 cup
    Grated orange zest, 1-2 tbsp
    Grated lemon zest, 1-2 tbsp
    Ground nutmeg, 1/2 tsp
    Ground cloves, 1/2 tsp
    Ground cinnamon, 1/2 tsp
    Ground ginger, 1/2 tsp
    Salt, 1/2 tsp or to taste
    White pepper, 1 1/2 tsp or to taste (can substitute black pepper for less bite)

    The original version used 1/2 cup butter, but I don't notice a difference halving it.


Prep time includes potato-baking time, by far the biggest part of it.

Bake sweet potatoes at 425 degrees for 60-80 minutes, until very soft. Cut off one end of each potato and pierce the skin to prevent explosions.

Preheat oven to 350. Cool potatoes and mash.

In large bowl with mixer, blend all ingredients together.

Pour into a 4qt casserole and bake for 45 minutes, or until tipped with brown.

Serves 12-16.

    I love this recipe! I've made it the last 3 years. In fact, I am so happy I was able to come on and find it again, because I lost it and i was devistated. LOVE IT - 11/30/08
