Ingredients
  • 4 pounds sweet potatoes, washed, peeled and cut into 2-inch rounds
  • 1 cup heavy cream
  • 1 stick (8 tablespoons) unsalted butter, melted, plus more for serving
  • 1/2 cup brown sugar
  • Zest of 1 lemon.
  • 1/2 teaspoon freshly-grated nutmeg
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
Directions
  • Place the sweet potatoes in a large pot and cover with cold water. Bring to a boil, then reduce to a simmer. Cook until the potatoes are very tender, about 45 minutes. Drain the potatoes and let them stand to release any excess water, 10 to 15 minutes.

  • Combine the sweet potatoes, cream, butter, sugar, lemon zest, nutmeg and salt in a large bowl. Mash until the mixture is light and smooth. Serve with a pat of butter.
