  1. Combine sweet potatoes, salt and the cinnamon stick in a medium saucepan with just enough water to cover. Boil, uncovered, stirring occasionally, until potato is tender, about 20 minutes. Drain. Discard cinnamon stick.
  2. Return potatoes to pan. Add 1½ tablespoons maple syrup and all the butter. Mash. Serve drizzled with the remaining maple syrup.

Nutritional note:

Sweet potatoes are loaded with beta carotene, which helps lower the risk of heart disease, stroke and cancer.

Pure maple syrup:

Pure maple syrup is a natural sweetner and has a smoother, more subtle flavour than imitation maple syrups.
