Recipe from The Real Jerk, courtesy of Arsenal Pulp Press.
In a large saucepan over medium heat, bring water to boil.
Add salt and sweet potatoes, and cook for 20 minutes, or until potatoes are tender.
Strain potatoes and cool, then mash, adding in egg, breadcrumbs, cinnamon, sugar, and vegetable oil.
Roll mixture into 2″ round balls.
In medium saucepan over medium heat, fry balls in oil until lightly browned. Place on paper towels to absorb excess oil.
To bake in the oven, preheat oven to 400°F. Place balls on greased baking sheet and bake for 20 minutes.
