Cinnamon Yam Mash
CINNAMON YAM MASH
Bahama Breeze Copycat Recipe
Makes 8 servings
5 pounds of yams, peeled, 2 inch diced
2 quarts water, hot
1 tablespoon salt
1 stick butter, cold, ½ inch dice
1 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon, ground
1/4 teaspoon pepper, white, ground
1/2 cup brown sugar
Place the peeled and diced yams in a large stockpot. Add hot water and salt, then place the stockpot on the stove over medium heat. Bring to a boil and cook for 35 minutes or until an inserted fork in the yam pierces easily.
Drain the water from the yam and transfer them into a mixing bowl. Using a wire whisk, mash until yams are broken up. Add diced cold butter, ground cinnamon, white pepper and brown sugar then mix again until the yams are smooth and all of the ingredients are mixed evenly. If needed, season with additional salt to taste.
Place the cinnamon yam mash on a large serving platter and garnish with fried plantain chips and chopped parsley.
Note: If yam is not available sweet potatoes may be substituted.
