Boil sweet potatoes for about 20 to 30 minutes on medium-high or until soft. Drain and let cool for a minute so not to burn yourself when peeling. I just cut them slightly along side befor placing them in the pot so that I can just peel them right off with a paper towel. Cut the little edges off as they don''t taste nice, add salt, cayenne, fresh ground nutmeg and butter. With a hand-held blender, blend until the consistency is creamy and and all lumps are gone.
This is an excellent side-dish!
Note: Do not microwave sweet potatoes instead of boiling them. They will turn out very dry and the dish will not work.
Also, you can pre-boil your sweet potatoes and save them in the refrigerator for a couple of days in a freezer bag, and then prepare them as above.
