Mashed Sweet Potatoes! Mmmm. This makes me long for thanksgiving. This is a good dish since it satisfies my sweet tooth without deviating from paleo. I got the recipe from Everyday Paleo.I cut the recipe in half and used only 2 yams. Since I don’t have a pressure cooker, I boiled the yams until tender, then peeled. The recipe confused me a little bit because there was nothing about mashing in the directions but in the associated photo, the yams looked mashed. So I just took ‘mix well’ to mean mash and mashed away. Also I used walnuts instead of pecans since that’s what I had in my pantry. Paleo Holiday Yams5 large yams, peeled and cut into 2 inch rounds2 small apples, peeled and cut into large chunks1 teaspoon fresh grated ginger1 tablespoon ground cinnamon½ teaspoon ground nutmeg¼ cup 100% pure maple syrup4 tablespoons organic grassfed butter1 cup chopped pecansCook the yams in a pressure cooker for 6-8 minutes.  Using a slotted spoon, move the cooked yams to a large mixing bowl.  To the yams, add the apples, butter, ginger, cinnamon, nutmeg, and maple syrup and mix well.  Spread the yam mixture evenly into a 11×7 glass baking dish.  Top with pecans and bake uncovered at 350 for 30-35 minutes.
