Recipe — Sweet Potato Puree with Pecans and Maple Syrup
12 portions
Metric Imperial


  • 10 medium-size sweet potatoes
  • 1 cup butter
  • 1 cup maple syrup (preferably golden syrup for its delicate flavour)
  • 1/2 cup sour cream
  • 1 bunch chives, finely chopped
  • 1 cup oven-roasted pecans


  1. Preheat the oven to 180 ˚C (350 ˚F).

  3. Peel the sweet potatoes. Put them in a food processor, along with butter, maple syrup and sour cream and mix to obtain the consistency of a puree.
  4. Put the puree in a bowl, add chives, gently mix together, then put the roasted pecans on top and serve.

More about Maple

Maple syrup comes in four classifications, according to colour and taste.

At the start of sugaring season, syrup is generally clear, with a lightly sweet taste. It becomes darker and caramelized as the season goes on.

An unopened can of maple syrup keeps for many years.

Once the can is opened, syrup should be kept in an airtight container in a cool place.

100% pure maple butter contains no butter or dairy.

Like all 100% pure maple products, maple butter comes from the sap of the maple tree… and that’s all.
