At their sweetest in fall and winter, these spuds make a crowd-pleasing side dish. Use the basic version without flavorings to make pie, biscuits, or souffles.

Cook's Notes

Never keep sweet potatoes in the refrigerator, as their natural sugars will convert to starch, making them less sweet. They will keep for up to 3 weeks in a cool, dry place.

    I have made Sweet Potato Puree with Orange-Ginger numerous times--it's a family favorite--but tonight I tried the Maple-Butter puree for the first time. Delicious! Easy! My only recommendation would be to add some milk or cooking liquid, as the potatoes were pretty thick after they went through the food processor. I know I'll be making this again soon.
