Whipped Cardamom Sweet Potatoes Recipe
- 5 pounds sweet potatoes
- ½ cup unsalted butter, softened
- ½ teaspoon ground cardamom
- salt and pepper to taste
- 1 quart vegetable oil for frying
- ¾ pound thinly sliced shallots
step 1: Preheat oven to 400 degrees F (200 degrees C).
step 2: Prick sweet potatoes with a fork. Bake for 1 hour or until tender; reduce oven temperature to 250 degrees F (120 degrees C).
step 3: Scoop potato flesh out of skins and place into a mixing bowl. Slowly beat in the butter and cardamom. Whip until potatoes are smooth and fluffy; season with salt and white pepper. Keep warm in oven.
