Sweet potatoes with marshmallow meringue (postre de camotes con merengue)




Love sweet potatoes especially in desserts and pies, I think taste
like lucuma, an amazing fruit from here,and Peru too.
 I know in North america and others countries  have now lucuma powder)

Anyway this recipe with sweet potatoes with marshmallow meringue is adapted from a vintage recipe from Good Housekeeping. 


and Im sharing with













Ingredients

3 lbs. (1,200 kilo) sweet potatoes
2 tablespoons maple syrup
or honey
1 tablespoon dark Brown sugar
1 tablespoon lemon juice
1/2 teaspoon ground allspice
pinch of salt
2 tablespoons  of heavy cream
3 egg whites
1/4 tsp. cream of tartar
1/2 cup granulated sugar

Method

In a pan cook  the sweet potatoes.
by 18 to 20 minutes or until very tender when pierced with
fork, drain.
When cool enough to handle, peel potatoes and put in a bowl,
add maple syrup or honey , brown sugar, lemon juice,pinch of salt and allspice. Mash potatoes with potato masher. Finally  add the heavy cream and stir well. 
Transfer to a casserole dish and baking by 15 minutes .

Prepare meringue:

In large bowl with mixer in high speed, beat eggs whites and cream of tartar until soft peaks form.  Sprinkle granulated sugar 2 tablespoon at a time, beating until sugar dissolved
and meringue stands in stiff , glossy peaks when beaters are lifted.

Transfer meringue to large piping bag .
Start at one side of the casserole dish and pipe meringue in small mounds onto surface of sweet potatos mix, coverage entire surface
Bake 6 to 8 minutes or until meringue is golden.

Postre de camotes con merengue










Antiguamente el camote se comía mucho aquí en Chile, realmente, muchos postres, pero la vida rápida, el querer tener todo en un minuto listo, en fin tantas cosas, ha hecho que el camote exista pero se ve poco, generalmente se encuentra en supermercados (líder) pero en la parte de las cosas más especiales.
Muchos lo asocian con el zapallo pero es diferente, su sabor me parece más parecido a la lúcuma, el camote es realmente delicioso, fácil de preparar, al cocinarse queda tierno y suave y se puede usar como se quiera.
(Tengo otras recetas de camote en mis recetas por si quieren ver)
El camote de Chile es un poco más pálido (como amarillo) y el de Perú es más anaranjado, los dos son muy ricos.
También en los congelados he visto camotes que traen de Perú.

  2. Qué rico Gloria, Es cierto, el camote es casi "exótico" a estas alturas, a mi me encanta hacer camote al horno para acompañar las carnes, pero en postre queda delicioso, aunque yo lo dejaría para más entrado el invierno. Besitos

  12. Gloria, This is a pretty looking dish... The problem is that I'd never be able to convince my wife to eat sweet potatoes and she doesn't like marshmellows either. (Except in Smores!) This is an old standby recipe that one sees a lot in the upper midwest and southern USA. Take Care, Big Daddy Dave
