Smashed Sweet Potatoes

When you do not own an actual masher but a fork and a spoon ladle waits with abated utensil breath, you get smashed potatoes. I must say, smashing is great fun. I think I know why most people keep so many potatoes on hand: You get a facial when the steam rises, peace of mind knowing easily and exactly when the potatoes are ready to smash*, and a feeling of complete and utter satisfaction when they have been sufficiently smashed. Ahhh.

Smashed Sweet Potatoes

2 lbs sweet potatoes, rinsed and chunked
1 c milk
1/2 t curry powder
Salt and pepper, to taste

After rinsing and chunking the potatoes, put the potatoes and water on to boil. Boil for a good little while until the potatoes are fork tender* (just until they can easily be poked through with a fork. Easy!). Drain.

Return to the pan. Smash sufficiently. Add the milk, and stir/smash into the potatoes. Add spice, and stir to combine.

That’s it. Delicious. Exciting. Easy. Really, really easy.

And!! Look at me! Using curry. Just a little, but it gives a really good flavor to help the sweet potatoes.

  2. And how about adding some more images? I’m not trying to offend anyone, content is really great. Just as I’ve heard visitors acquire information much more effective when they see some helpful illustrations.
