The refrigerator light goes on...

I love plain mashed yams, but the hint of peppermint makes these sweet and savory and a bit spicy.

Mashed Yams with Mint


Preheat the oven to 325°F.

Place the yams in the oven and roast for about 40 minutes.

Remove the yams and place in a bowl with the salt, mint, butter, sour cream, maple syrup and pepper.

Using a fork, mash the yams until smooth and blended with the other ingredients. Do not overmash or the yams will become pasty.
