Author: Epicurus.com Kitchens
  • 2 pounds sweet potatoes
  • 6 Tablespoons unsalted butter
  • 1 medium shallot, peeled, thinly sliced
  • 1/4 Cup cider vinegar
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons fresh ginger, finely grated
  • 2 1/2 teaspoons dry mustard
  • 1/2 teaspoon Cayenne pepper
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/8 teaspoon freshly ground pepper
  1. Heat oven to 400 degrees. Prick sweet potatoes. Place on a baking sheet and cook about 40 minutes, or until softened. Let cool.
  2. Peel sweet potatoes, cut into chunks and set aside.
  3. Melt 2 tablespoons butter in an 8-inch skillet over medium heat. Reduce heat to medium low and add shallots; cook, stirring occasionally, until caramelized, 6 to 8 minutes. Add vinegar, cook 2 minutes. Stir in ginger, mustard, cayenne, salt and pepper. Cook over low heat 2 to 3 minutes.
  4. Place sweet potatoes in a food processor; add shallot mixture, process until smooth. Transfer mixture to a heavy saucepan. Over low heat, cook 1 hour, stirring often, until it takes on a deep rich color.
  5. Cool completely. Transfer mixture to an electric mixer. Add remaining 4 tablespoons butter in small pieces. Whip until fluffy; serve with biscuits.
