Baked sweet potatoes with orange-coriander butter
- 6 sweet potatoes
- 100g farm butter, at room temperature
- zest of 1 orange
- 60ml (¼ cup) chopped coriander leaves
- 1 clove garlic, crushed
- 1 chilli, chopped (optional)
- sea salt and freshly ground black
- pepper, to taste
For the orange-coriander butter, pound together all of the ingredients until well combined.
Scrub and prick the sweet potatoes. Bake in a preheated oven or wrap in foil and bake buried in the coals until soft enough to eat.
Slash the tops and squeeze the sides of the potatoes, add a big spoonful of the flavoured butter and serve.
