6 Medium Sized Sweet Potatoes (~2 Cups Chopped)
1 Tsp Kosher Salt (Divided)
½ Tsp Black Pepper
½ Tsp Ground Cinnamon
½ Tsp Ground Nutmeg
1 Tbsp Olive Oil
Bay leaf (Garnish)
- Begin by washing and peeling the sweet potatoes. Once done, chop into roughly 1-inch sized cubes. This will help reduce the amount of time they need to boil.
- In a large sauce pot, add in the chopped sweet potatoes, ½ Tsp kosher salt and cover with water. Place a lid on the pot and boil the sweet potatoes until tender. About 15-20 minutes.
- Once soft, remove from heat and carefully drain the water. Next, add in the Crofter’s Organic Premium Apricot Fruit Spread, the remainder ½ Tsp kosher salt, black pepper, cinnamon, nutmeg, and olive oil.
- Now mash together these ingredients using a potato masher until smooth. Garnish with a bay leaf or a sprinkle of ground bay leaf and keep warm until ready to serve. Enjoy!
