This mash is a great partner for pork, duck, and all kinds of game; the small amount of molasses really deepens the flavor but doesn’t become cloying. We love the way parsnips and carrots complement the sweet potatoes. You can make this up to a day ahead and then reheat it before serving.
I was looking for a sweet potato recipe for Thanksgiving that wasn't overloaded with sugar, cream, and butter. While this was lighter than some recipes, the overall texture was still somewhat heavy. It needs some other spice...maybe orange juice and/or cinnamon would help?
I've made this for a couple of years now. It's a perfect accompaniment for pork.
