Pierce the sweet potatoes several times with a fork and place on a foil-lined baking sheet. Bake until softened, 1 to 1 1/2 hours, depending on size; cool to warm. Slice each sweet potato in half lengthwise. Scoop the flesh into a saucepan and discard the skins. Add the maple syrup (to taste), butter. Using a wooden spoon or potato masher, mix until smooth.( I make mine chunky) Season with the salt, cinnamon and nutmeg. Place in broiler, until warmed through, about 5 minutes.
