  1. Peel the sweet potatoes and cut into bite-size pieces.
  2. Rinse well and set aside. In a large pot, combine the sweet potatoes, brown sugar, cinnamon stick and whole cloves.

  3. Add enough water to cover the potatoes. Bring potatoes to a boil, until they become tender (about 20 minutes).
  4. When done, drain the potatoes and add to a large mixing bowl and set aside. Discard the cinnamon stick and the 2 whole cloves.

  5. Melt the butter in a medium saucepan. Stir into your saucepan the ground cinnamon, salt and ground clove.
  6. Once your butter mixture is well mixed, pour the butter mixture over your cooked sweet potatoes and mash with a hand masher until the desired consistency. I like these fully mashed but some people like them a little chunky.

  7. Top with your favorite toppings, such as pecans and raisins!
