“Feels Like I’m Home Again”

I truly felt like I was back in Barbados listening to soca while smelling the flavours of my beautiful sweet potato pie.

This recipe was adapted from latinfood.com

Ingredients:

3 lbs white-flesh sweet potatoes, boiled and mashed, 1 cup crushed pineapple, drained, 2 tbsp salted butter, room temperature, 1/2 tsp ground cinnamon, 1/4 tsp grated nutmeg, salt and pepper to taste, 5 – 6 slices pineapple rings , 5 – 6 stemmed cherries (remove stones) , 1 Tbsp melted butter


Method:
  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F
  2. Combine mashed sweet potatoes, crushed pineapple, room temperature butter, cinnamon, nutmeg, salt and pepper to taste. Mix thoroughly.
  3. Transfer mixture to a greased 8 x 8-inch casserole dish. Arrange pineapple slices on top of mixture and place a cherry in the center of each pineapple ring.
  4. Brush the entire top of the pie with the melted butter and bake for 40 minutes or until golden brown.
  5. Let pie cool until warm or room temperature before serving.
