Here is another sweet potato recipe I adapted a few years ago for a Thanksgiving dinner we hosted. Copied from another threadf.

Whiskey-Glazed Sweet Potatoes

Recipe courtesy Guy Fieri, Food Network

Serves:
8 servings

Ingredients

3 pounds sweet potatoes (I used 6 large sweet potatoes)
1 cup pecans
4 tablespoons unsalted butter, plus more for preparing baking dish (I used a whole stick of butter)
3/4 cup agave syrup, preferably amber (I used 1-1/4 cups agave)
1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1/2 teaspoon ground nutmeg
1/4 teaspoon cayenne pepper (I used 1/2 teaspoon cayenne pepper)
1/2 teaspoon kosher salt (I used 1/4 teaspoon)
1/4 cup whiskey (I used 3/4 cup very old whiskey)
2 cups crisp apples, peeled, cored, and sliced into 1-inch pieces (I didn't use apples)

Directions

Preheat the oven to 375 degrees F.

Place the potatoes on a baking sheet and cook the potatoes whole, do not pierce. Bake for 45 minutes to 1 hour. Lightly squeeze the potatoes - if they are soft, they are done. Let cool. (I baked the potatoes the night before and let them chill in the refrigerator. Very easy to peel when chilled.)

In a small saute pan over high heat, add the pecans and lightly toast. Add 4 tablespoons of butter, reduce the heat to medium, add the agave and spices, and allow to simmer for 4 to 5 minutes. Add the whiskey and continue to simmer for 5 minutes more. (I simmered it for about 30 minutes.)

Peel the potatoes and cut into 1/2-inch slices. Butter the bottom and sides of an 8 by 8-inch baking dish. Arrange the sweet potatoes, alternating with the apples. Pour the whiskey-pecan mixture over the top and place in the oven. (I refrigerated the casserole for several hours before reheating it in the oven. The rechilling of the casserole kept the potatoes from becoming mush when reheated.)

Bake for 30 minutes, basting the top with the whiskey sauce once at 15 minutes. (I didn't baste.)

When whiskey is cooked in a recipe, the alcohol evaporates off, and I'd guess that very old whiskey is somewhat pre-evaporated, so personally I would have used LESS than the recipe called for, but if you really like the whiskey taste, more power to ya.

@ossobuco,
SMASHED SWEET POTATOES is one of my favorite dish:
Ingredients:

4 pounds sweet potatoes (about 6 large)

½ cup orange juice

½ cup heavy cream

4 tablespoons (1/2 stick) unsalted butter, melted

¼ cup light brown sugar

1 teaspoon ground nutmeg

½ teaspoon ground cinnamon

2 teaspoons kosher salt

1 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper

Method:

Preheat the oven to 375 degrees F.

Scrub the potatoes, prick them several times with a knife or fork, and bake them for 1 hour or until very soft when pierced with a knife. Remove from the oven and scoop out the insides as soon as they are cool enough to handle. Place the sweet potato meat into the bowl of an electric mixer fitted with a paddle attachment and add the orange juice, cream, butter, brown sugar, nutmeg, cinnamon, salt, and pepper. Mix together until combined but not smooth and transfer to a baking dish.

Bake the potatoes for 20 to 30 minutes, until heated through.

@ossobuco,
You can try this also; SWEET POTATO SOUP
Heat oil in a heavy-bottom pot. Add leeks, onion, celery, carrot, sweet potatoes, pumpkin, and garlic, and saute until they start to brown.
Add bay leaf, stock, and cream; bring to a boil. Reduce to a simmer and cook until all vegetables are tender.
Add sage, cloves, nutmeg, cinnamon, and salt and pepper to taste. Remove bay leaf, and puree. Serve hot.

@ehBeth,
I like the avory recips foor sweet taters. We make one ith many of the ingredients above (Those that dont turn the tuber into dessert dish). In addition e add a nice amount of bacon crumbles and some of the grease AND about a 1/4 tsp of a mild garam masala powder, gives a teeny curry presence . The taters are cooked by baking or nuking and then all the met is removed and smooshed

@ehBeth,
Tree of 40 types of fruit:
http://cdn.cnn.com/cnnnext/dam/assets/150727155350-tree-of-40-fruit-exlarge-169.jpg
This is a real project by an art professor that was shown at the Museum of Modern Art. Grafting branches from different fruit trees, each branch grows a different fruit and has somewhat different colored foliage.
