Orange Whipped Sweet Potatoes
3 pounds sweet potatoes (about 6 medium-large)
2 cups orange juice
1/4 teaspoon ground nutmeg
1/4 teaspoon ground ginger
Peel the potatoes, and cut them into chunks. Place the potatoes and the orange juice in a 4-quart pot. Cover the pot, and bring the potatoes to a boil over medium-high heat. Reduce the heat to low, and cook for about 25 minutes, or until the potatoes are soft. Stir occasionally.
Drain all but about 1/2 cup of the cooking liquid from the pot, reserving the drained liquid. Add the nutmeg and ginger, and mash the potatoes with a potato masher or beat them with an electric mixer until smooth. If the potatoes are too stiff, add a little of the reserved cooking liquid. Serve immediately.
Makes 10 (1/2 cup) servings.
