The Wisconsin Fresh Market Vegetable Growers invite you to
celebrate the holidays with fresh, local vegetables!
Holiday Sweet Potato Casserole
6 large sweet potatoes, baked, peeled, and mashed
1 1/4 cup milk
1/4 cup good bourbon
1 1/2 cups sugar
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon cinnamon
1/2 teaspoon allspice
2 teaspoons vanilla
Mix all ingredients well; beat well, until light and fluffy. If needed add a little more milk. Spoon sweet potato mixture into a buttered casserole dish; bake at 350° until set, about 20 to 30 minutes. Garnish with marshmallows and bake until marshmallows melt and just begin to brown. If desired garnish with finely grated orange zest instead of marshmallows, and skip the final baking time.
Select carrots that are brightly colored and firm. Do not purchase carrots that are shriveled, soft or cracked. Carrots with small cores are sweeter than those with large, woody cores.
Easy Brown Sugar Glazed Carrots
16 ounces baby carrots
2 tablespoons butter
1/3 cup brown sugar, packed
1 cup water
pepper, to taste
In a medium saucepan, combine the baby carrots with remaining ingredients. Stir to blend ingredients. Bring to a boil over high heat. Reduce heat to medium and continue boiling (uncovered) for about 20 to 25 minutes, or until carrots are tender and the liquid has evaporated.
Serves 4 to 6.
Wash potatoes under running water. Red or white potatoes can be scrubbed vigorously with a vegetable brush. Remove any sprouts that may be present. Potato skin is very high in nutrients and should be left on whenever possible.

Better Baked Potato Recipe
