Browned Maple Butter Sweet Potato & Pinot Noir Wine Pairing

Node Shortcode: [[nid:97]]

Recipe type: Side Dish
  • 4 lbs of sweet potatoes
  • Sea salt & fresh pepper
  • 1 tablespoon of unsalted butter
  • 4.5 teaspoons of pure maple syrup
  • ¼ cup of chopped toasted pecans
  1. Pour yourself a glass of Kendall-Jackson Vintner’s Reserve Pinot Noir, tighten up that apron, & let’s get to cooking!
  2. While your oven is preheating to 400 degrees, prick your sweet potatoes a few times all over with a fork.
  3. Line a baking sheet with foil and bake until tender (an hour and a half, depending on your oven)
  4. Once your potatoes have cooled, scoop out the flesh and puree in a blender or food processer. Add in 1.5 teaspoons of salt & fresh ground pepper (to taste), blend until smooth.
  5. Heat a saucepan over medium heat & add in your butter. Once melted, remove from heat, and add in your maple syrup in a spiral motion.
  6. Add your puree to a serving dish (reheat if necessary), pour browned maple syrup butter over top & sprinkle on the pecans.
  7. Serve & be merry!
