Cavalcade of Food – Compound Butter & Sweet Potatoes

During the fall and right through the holidays we enjoy the goodness of sweet potatoes. While some people like to cook them with lots of sugary syrup, nuts and marshmallows, I prefer to bake or roast them. You can bake them much like a traditional potato, and then use a wonderful compound butter that melts into the flesh of the warm baked sweet potato.


2 sticks salted butter (softened)
1/2 cup brown sugar (packed)
2 tsp. ground cinnamon

Put all ingredients in a large bowl. Combine with a large fork or spoon, a potato masher, or an electric mixer. Transfer to a covered container and refrigerate for a few hours. Let butter come to room temperature before using for easy melting and spreading.
