Here is my family's standard sweet potato casserole--enjoy!
Orange-Scented Sweet Potatoes
3 lbs. sweet potatoes, baked
5 tablespoons orange juice
1/2 teaspoon grated orange rind (from organic orange)
1/2 teaspoon grated lemon rind (from organic lemon)
1 teaspoon grated fresh ginger root
Pinch of ground nutmeg
2 1/2 tablespoons maple syrup
1/8 teaspoon salt or to taste
Lightly toasted, finely chopped pecans for garnish
Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F. Peel the sweet potatoes and put the flesh into a food processor, along with the remaining ingredients. Process until smooth. Bake the puree in a casserole dish until heated through, about 15 minutes. Garnish with the pecans and serve hot. Makes 6 servings.
