Mashed Grapefruit Sweet Potatoes-

12 small sweet potatoes (7-1/2 pounds)
1/2 cup bud-butter, divided (4 ounces)
3 tablespoons dark rum, divided
1/2 cup brown sugar
2 cups Grapefruit Sections, cut into chunks
1/2 cup Grapefruit Juice
Salt and pepper, to taste

Bake the sweet potatoes in a preheated 400 degree oven until soft. Peel and mash with 3 ounces of bud-butter and 1 tablespoon of rum:whistle:. Reserve until needed.

Melt the remaining 1 ounce of bud-butter in a sauté pan. Add the sugar and stir until the sugar is melted and begins to bubble. Add the grapefruit and sauté until the liquid is reduced by 1/2. Add the grapefruit juice and the remaining 2 tablespoons of rum. Cook for 1 minute.

Add the mixture to the sweet potatoes. Season with salt and pepper and voila!!! You\'ll be a happy spud in about 10 minutes!~

Aaahhh! Another tasty meal in itself! :)
