  • Peel the sweet potatoes and cut into bite-size pieces.
  • Rinse well and set aside. In a large pot, combine the sweet potatoes, brown sugar, cinnamon stick, and whole cloves.
  • Add enough water to cover the potatoes. Bring potatoes to a boil, until they become tender (about 20 minutes).
  • When done, drain the potatoes and add to a large mixing bowl and set aside. Discard the cinnamon stick and the 2 whole cloves.
  • Melt the butter in a medium saucepan. Stir into your saucepan the ground cinnamon, salt and ground clove.
  • 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.
  • Top with your favorite toppings, such as pecans, raisins, and marshmallows.
