Sweet Potato Soup (with Curry & Garlic)

Here is an heirloom recipe passed to me by my lovely new Facebook friend,
Nancy Pugh, who got it from her friend Helen Heenan, New Zealand, who got it
from her grandmother. That is the beauty of "networking" at its most organic!
I have made a couple of minor adjustments (you guessed it: I used the

2 med.- lg. sweet potatoes, diced into ~ 1 cm cubes
1 - 2 tsp. curry powder
75 Gm butter (~ 2/3 stick)
2 - 4 cloves, garlic

Cook all ingredients together, low heat to melt butter. Add water to cover & cook together until sweet potatoes are cooked through.
Transfer into the VitaMix cannister and whir until homogeneous (don't drain
before doing that).

Add milk or vegetable stock just before serving, to desired thickness.
May freeze.
Taste improves with age.
