MASHED SWEET POTATOES WITH BANANAS, BOURBON AND VANILLA

Makes 8 servings.
Preparation Time: 35 minutes.

Ingredients
• 3 pounds sweet potatoes, peeled, cut into 2" cubes
• 3 each very ripe bananas, peeled and sliced
• 1 cup heavy cream
• 1 each small vanilla bean, split and scraped
• 1/4 cup honey
• 1/2 cup light brown sugar
• 3 tablespoons freshly squeezed orange juice
• 1 teaspoon salt
• 1 tablespoon Maker’s Mark bourbon
• 1 tablespoon soft butter
• 2 quarts water
• 2 teaspoons salt


Directions
Bring the water and 2 teaspoons salt to a boil, add the potatoes and cook until tender – about 15 to 20 minutes. While the potatoes are cooking, in a separate pot, combine the cream, honey, brown sugar, vanilla, bananas and orange juice. Bring to a boil and cook on high for 5 minutes. Remove vanilla bean and either purée with a mixing wand or mash well with a potato masher.

When the potatoes are tender, drain well and add to the cream mixture. Cook on medium heat for 4 to 5 minutes and mash gently with a spoon leaving some chunks of potato. The mixture will thicken slightly as the potatoes absorb the cream. Stir in the bourbon and the soft butter. Can be held and reheated.
