I have to admit I enjoyed the interaction between AB and the sweet potato's agent (the former "Cocoa Carl") and Deb Duchon a bit more than the recipes, but I do plan to try a sweet potato pie some day. Only AB could think of that creative way of slicing a pie!

I have to admit I LIKE sweet potatoes with marshmellos on top. Maybe I just like the marshmellos. Next time I make them I may try his syrup method, but they're still getting the marshmellos on top. Anyway, I will probably never try putting chilis in my sweet taters, but I would like to try the pie. It looked good.

Love the episodes. Love the Coco Carl dude. He is a hoot. Not a real big fan of sweet potatoes, probably willn ever try them, but damn the episode was entertaining.

I've got to admit that the sweeet potato chips from IJHFTH is one of my favorite sweet potato applications. I'll have to try some of these receipes as well.

the chiles make it better

Postby winston61 » Thu Dec 09, 2004 5:56 pm

For Thanksgiving dinner this year I made the mashed sweet potatoes with the chipotle pepper. I have to say that it was very good. The smoky flavor goes with the sweet potato that just tasted right. My own sweet potato pie recipe is the one from the Fannie Farmer cook book. I bake the potatoes instead of boiling or steaming. Deepens the flavor. For the smoothest custard puree the potatoes in the food processor till very smooth. Use Meyers dark rum. The pie is best is baked the day before serving.

I made this for Thanksgiving. We had an over abundance of food, plus a really yummy pumpkin cheesecake (Joy of Cooking), so this pie didn't get touched much. I did have a slice, and I have to say that it's a meal in itself. It's good, but I don't know, it's just not a homerun. I doubt that I'll make it again.

I made the waffles for dinner one night. We had a guest over and the consensus was that they were VERY filling, but the ornage needed to be dialed back a bit.

I also made the pie because, hey I had a bunch of yolks and sweet potatos left over, so what the heck.

Granted it was a very good pie, but served during the holidays I think it would have easily gotten passed up for Pumpkin or Pecan.

I still haven't done the chipotle mashers yet. My wife has stomach issues with peppers, so I'll gradually work the peppers and sauce into the mix.

All in all, I think the episode highlighted that sweat potatos are a very useful vegi. I think we're going to have mashed sweet potatos as a regular part of our menu rotation.

Mashed Sweet Potatoes- Say no to Chipotle

Postby Skylighter » Wed Dec 19, 2007 4:06 am

I love Sweet Potatoes. I thought this episode was great. More importantly, I found that steaming seems to be the absolute way to make my favorite side dish.

I made the mashed potatoes on two seperate nights. The first without the Chipotle pepper and the second with the Chipotle pepper. I didnt really like the smokey flavor of the pepper and it was too spicy for my taste.

I would suggest that the recipe is great, minus the pepper. Next I want to try adding bourbon.
