Sweet Potatoes with a Ginger-Cider Reduction
• 3 medium sweet potatoes
• 4 cups fresh cider
• 1/4 cup peeled, minced fresh ginger
• 2 Tbsp butter
• Salt and pepper
Put the sweet potatoes in a large pot, add water to cover by 2 inches.
Bring to a boil, reduce heat and simmer until very tender, about 40 minutes. Drain and cool. Then peel and cut into large chunks.
Bring the cider and half the ginger to a boil in a heavy saucepan over high head. Reduce to medium, and simmer until reduced to 1 cup. about half an hour.
Transfer the cider, remaining ginger, sweet potatoes and butter to a food processor and process until very smooth.
Season with salt and pepper.
