Sweet potatoes have been a constant is the south since colonial times, and served to make excellent biscuits especially when wheat was in short supply.

But this ain't 'bout no biscuits. Here's one of the easiest, most adaptable campfire recipes for us southern lads, be it winter or summer.

With your knife, shave one average sweet potato naked and cut the ends off. Slice that puppy into discs or cubes. Cut the ends off of one carrot and one parsnip. Slice each into coins. Place all of these in your kettle full of water and boil until the potatoes are tender. Won't take long.

Drain off all the water, and add any kind of spice that makes you smile; I use cinnamon, allspice, nutmeg, pumpkin pie spice, apple pie spice, or any combination of these. Add butter if you have it. A little milk works, too, if your cow is available. Bits of apple are also an option. Raisons work. Brown sugar is a popular companion. Add cooked squash if you're a campfire animal. Anyhow, you can do lots or not much with it, depending upon what suits you. Mash with a spoon or piece of wood into a paste, mixing well. Serve hot, and it'll make you say "ya'll."
