just like baked or boiled taters/carrots

I used to refuse to eat them unless they were raw! (I also declared pizza and tacos to be poison - I promise, you can ask my mom!)

Nowadays I like them boiled and drained, with butter, salt and pepper! I'm the only one in the house who will eat them, though!

Peel and boil them till tender. Drain. Mash them with a little evaporated or regular milk ( about 1/4 cup depending on how many you have), a tablespoon or so of sugar and a dash or two of red pepper flakes. This is my favorite.
