10 sweet potatoes
1 stick unsalted butter
2 T. brown sugar
1/2 tsp. salt
1/4 cup bourbon
1/2 cup chopped pecans
1/4 cup orange juice, or a little less
1 T. grated orange peel
1/2 tsp. cinnamon
1/4 tsp. nutmeg
6 oranges

Cook potatoes in jackets until tender. Peel, mash well or push through a vegetable press; add butter while potatoes are hot and then add remaining ingredients (except oranges). Taste and correct seasoning, if necessary. Cut oranges in half, scalloping the edges with a sharp paring knife. Remove pulp from the oranges and squeeze to make 1/4 cup juice to add to potato mixture. Fill shells with potato mixture and cover with foil. Bake at 325 for about 30 minutes. Remove foil and garnish with chopped pecans or marshmallows. Return to oven for a few minutes and then serve hot.
