Sweet Potatoes with Wild Turkey 101
- 5 pounds sweet potatoes, unpeeled
- 1/4 cup heavy cream
- 1 tablespoon fresh lemon juice
- 1/2 teaspoon freshly grated lemon zest
- Salt and pepper
- 1/3 cup Wild Turkey 101
- 1/4 cup dark brown sugar
Preheat the oven to 450 F. Pierce the sweet potatoes with a fork and place in a large roasting pan. Roast for 1 hour or until tender. Remove from the oven and allow to stand for at least 15-30 minutes before proceeding.
Peel the sweet potatoes and cut them into large chunks. Combine them with the cream lemon juice and lemon zest in a mixing bowl. Add the salt and pepper to taste. Using an electric mixer, mash the sweet potato mixture.
Combine the bourbon and the brown sugar in a large saucepan and heat to a boil. Stir the sweet potato mixture into the bourbon mixture and cook, stirring occasionally, over low heat until heated through.
