Recipe Note: To make mashed sweet potatoes, peel and about 1 1/2 pounds sweet potatoes into 2-inch chunks. Place in a saucepan; cover with water and bring to a boil. Simmer for about 15 minutes, or until potatoes are soft. Drain off water and mash in a mixer or food processor to get a smooth consistency. Cool before using.
