What You'll Need
- 4 sweet potatoes, peeled and shredded (about 2 pounds) (see note)
- 1/3 cup orange juice
- 1/4 cup butter
- 1/4 cup packed brown sugar
- 1/2 teaspoon salt
- 1/2 cup chopped pecans, toasted
What to Do
- Combine first 5 ingredients in a lightly greased 4- to 5-quart slow cooker.
- Cover and cook on LOW setting 5 - 5-1/2 hours or until potatoes are tender. Using a potato masher, mash potatoes in cooker to desired consistency. Sprinkle with toasted pecans before serving.
Shred the sweet potatoes in a snap in a food processor. This helps the potatoes cook evenly and creates a smoother mash. The potatoes shrink down in the slow cooker as they soften, so there's plenty of room to mash right in the cooker when the potatoes are tender.
