1 (1lb.) sweet potato equals 1 cup mashed sweet potatoes if you decide to not use canned sweet potatoes. The above pie was made with boiling a 1 lb. sweet potato for about 40 minutes until cooked. Then immediately put under cold water to stop the cooking process, peel and mash for pie. You can make your crust or use a bought one.
