Sweet potatoes ... without the marshmallows

Thanksgiving is just around the corner!
I'm trying a new sweet potato dish this year for Thanksgiving. I think it looks just as good . . . and leaves off that layer of marshmallows
Holiday Sweet Potatos
8 cups diced peeled sweet potato
4 cups 2% low-fat milk
2 1/4 cups diced peeled Rome apple
1 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon grated orange rind
1 (3-inch) cinnamon stick
2 tablespoons maple syrup
1 teaspoon ground ginger
Dash of ground nutmeg
Combine the first 6 ingredients in a large saucepan; bring to a boil, and cook 20 minutes or until the sweet potato is very tender. Strain the mixture through a colander into a bowl, reserving 1/2 cup liquid. Discard cinnamon stick.
Place sweet potato mixture, reserved 1/2 cup liquid, maple syrup, ginger, and nutmeg in a food processor, and process until smooth.
I am going to sprinkle with a few pecans.
Y'all enjoy~
