Mash Sweet Potato

Recipe taken from the book: MI COCINA, A la manera de Caracas (My Kitchen at Caracas Style) by Armando Scannone. . This recipe book is the best recipe book in Spanish I have ever read. The recipes are very good and well explained that I promise success in every meal.


2 bl sweet potato (the white type), 6 cup of water, 1 tea spoon of salt, 3 spoon of whipping cream,  3 spoon of sugar, 1/4 tea spoon of nutmeg grated, 1/2 to 1 tea spoon of salt, 1/4 teaspoon of white pepper, 1cup of milk, 3 spoon of butter.


  1. Peel  and cut in pieces the sweet potato, wash it.
  2. Put the sweet potato in a pot and cover it with water, about 6 cup of water, 1 tea spoon of salt. Boil and Cook until it is soft, about 15 minutes. When ready, drain the water, and mash the sweet potato in the pot.
  3. Put the mash sweet potato en a dry  pot with the rest of the ingredients in “double boiler“, for this put the pot  inside of a bigger pot with 4 or 5 cm of water, and put the bigger pot on the stove, medium fire, and stir the mash sweet potato vigorously with a wooden spoon or with a mixer. Keep it hot in the “double boiler” (no fire) until you are ready to put it on the table and serve.
