Recipe from Jimmy

SWEET POTATO POLENTA – serves 4
10 ounces sweet potatoes, peeled and cut into 2-inch pieces
3 Tablespoons maple syrup
1 1/3 cups heavy whipping cream
2 Tablespoons unsalted butter
3/4 cup instant polenta
1/8 teaspoon salt
Pinch of white pepper

Place the potatoes in a small baking pan, toss with the maple syrup, and cover with aluminum foil. Bake for
30 to 45 minutes, until soft. Scrape potatoes and syrup into the bowl of a food processor and process until
smooth. Heat the cream and butter over medium heat in a 3-quart saucepan. When the cream begins to
simmer, slowly whisk in the polenta. Add the salt and pepper and continue stirring for 7 minutes. Mix in the
pureed sweet potatoes until completely incorporated and heat through. Cover and set aside.
