How to Make It

Step 1    

Wrap the thyme, bay leaves, peppercorns and cloves in a piece of cheesecloth and secure with kitchen string. Put the bundle in a large saucepan and add the root vegetables, onion, garlic and white wine. Add enough water to cover by 1 inch and bring the mixture to a boil over high heat. Reduce the heat to moderately low and simmer until the vegetables are tender, about 45 minutes. Drain the vegetables and discard the herb bundle.

Step 2    

Return the vegetables to the saucepan and cook over high heat, stirring, until the vegetables are dry, about 3 minutes. Remove from the heat and smash the vegetables with a potato masher. Stir in the butter and maple syrup and season with salt and pepper. Serve hot.

Make Ahead

The smashed vegetables can be refrigerated for up to 2 days. Rewarm in a double boiler.
