This recipe is from the former Colonial Inn in Hillsborough, NC, a historic inn that boasted a 250-year run. General Cornwallis must have favored sweetpotatoes during his Revolutionary War tour in the colonies because there are a lot of Cornwallis Yam recipes in southern recipe collections. This has to be one of the best!

6 medium North Carolina sweetpotatoes
1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1/2 teaspoon ground nutmeg
1/2 cup butter
3 eggs
1/2 cup crushed pineapple
1 cup sugar
1/2 cup grated coconut
1 1/2 cups milk
more grated coconut for garnish

Boil sweetpotatoes until softened. Peel and mash.

Season with cinnamon, nutmeg, and butter.

Beat eggs and add to potatoes.

Combine with remaining ingredients.

Pour into a greased 9x13-inch or 3-quart casserole.

Bake in a 350 degree F. oven until light brown, about 1 hour.

Top with a sprinkle of coconut.
