Makes 8 Portions Buttermilk Mashed Yams
Prep Time: 5 minutes
Cook Time: 25 minutes
Total Time: 30 minutes
- 2 lbs yams, peeled and cut in quarters
- 1 cup buttermilk
- 1 tsp salt, or to taste
Boil the yams in salted water until just tender. Do not overcook, as the yams will absorb too much water. Drain well, and transfer back to the pot. Add the buttermilk, and salt; mash until smooth. Serve hot. May be made ahead and reheated in the microwave.
