Every good thing given and every perfect gift is from above, coming down from the Father of lights, with whom there is no variation or shifting shadow. (James 1:17)

Whipped Sweet Potatoes with Marshmallow Crust

3 lbs. sweet potatoes or yams

1˝ cups Organics™ Low-Fat Milk

2 T. minced fresh ginger

3 T. Safeway Bottled Lime Juice

4 cups miniature marshmallows

2 T. orange peel long, thin shreds (optional)


Scrub sweet potatoes, pierce in several places with a sharp knife and place in a shallow 9” x 13” or 10” x 15” pan. Bake in a 400° oven until sweet potatoes give readily when gently squeezed, about 1 hour, depending on size. Let stand until cool enough to handle, about 10 minutes. Cut sweet potatoes in half and scoop flesh into a large bowl, discard peels. With a potato masher or a mixer, mash or beat sweet potatoes with milk. Stir in ginger, lime juice and 2 cups marshmallows. Spread evenly in a shallow 3-quart baking dish. Cover sweet potatoes evenly with remaining marshmallows. Bake in a 400° oven until sweet potatoes are hot in the center and marshmallow topping is richly browned, 15 to 20 minutes. Sprinkle with orange peel and serve, adding salt to taste.
