Sweet Potato Orange Cups

From Dorothy McNett's Recipe Book at www.dorothymcnett.com.

2-3 medium sweet potatoes
3 large oranges
1/4 teaspoon ground coriander
1/4 teaspoon ground nutmeg
1 tablespoon butter
2 tablespoons sour cream or creme fraiche
1 tablespoon brown sugar
1/4 teaspoon fine sea salt
freshly ground peppercorns
1/4 cup dried cranberries

Peel and cut sweet potatoes into even sizes. Place in batter bowl. Cover. Microwave on high, using 5 minutes per pound of potatoes as a guide, about 5-6 minutes total. Set aside to cool slightly. Cut each orange in half crosswise, using a decorative slicer if available. Squeeze out the pulp and juice, reserving about 2 tablespoons from each orange. Scoop out the pulp to make the shells attractive. Set shells aside. Mash the potatoes with the spices, butter, cream, brown sugar, salt and pepper adding the reserved orange juice. Pile back into the shells. Spoon mixture into shells and arrange on a microwave safe plate. Sprinkle with cranberries, tucking some down into the mixture. Microwave on high about 3 minutes, or until hot. Serve.
