3 med. sweet potatoes (about 5 oz. each)
1 can (20 oz.) crushed pineapple in its own juice, drained of juice except for 1/4 cup
1 Tbsp. melted butter
1 tsp. ground cinnamon
1/2 tsp. ground allspice
1/2 tsp. ground ginger
1/4 tsp. ground cloves
Salt and fresh-ground black pepper to taste


  1. Preheat the oven to 400°F. Prick the surface of the sweet potatoes with a fork. Place the sweet potatoes directly on the oven rack with a foil-lined baking sheet placed on the rack directly below it. Roast the sweet potatoes for about 45 minutes or until fork tender.
  2. Remove the sweet potatoes from the oven, and set aside until cool enough to handle. Scoop the flesh from the sweet potatoes, discarding the skin. Add the flesh to a large bowl. Add the remaining ingredients and mash well.
  3. Place the sweet potato mixture into a 4-cup casserole dish, and bake at 400°F for 20 minutes or until bubbly and lightly browned.
