I received this Goodie box from the Hillbilly Gourmet, proprietor of the restaurant named MAGNOLIAS ON MAIN in Lamar, S C. Having never eaten a white sweet potato, I wanted to experience the true flavor, so I used as few extra ingredients as possible.

The taste to me is similar to that of a Yukon Gold Potato, but a bit sweeter, but much less sweet than a regular sweet potato. The texture is creamy & smooth. I merely added butter & pepper & immediately fell in love with them. It was all I could do to refrain from eating the entire dish, as I wanted my husband to taste them. They're delicious

1Wash, & peel sweet Potatoes. This is what the whole potato looks like.
2When cut, the inside is white just like a regular russet potato. Just comparing the color of both a regular sweet potato and a white.
3Peel potatoes then slice as desired, and rinse.
4Add sliced Potatoes to a medium sauce pan and cover with water. Then boil until tender. Mine took about 20 minutes. Proceed to beat, whip or mash with a large fork, beater or spoon. add pepper, softened butter & salt if desired, and mix until blended. add additional pat of butter on top if desired, and chopped chive, scallions or parsley. Serve while still hot.
