2 1/2poundssweet potatoes,peeled and cut into 2-inch cubes
1/4cuphalf-and-half,or heavy cream or milk
1tspsalt,or more to taste
Bring a pot of water to a boil then add the sweet potatoes to the pot. Cook the sweet potatoes until they're fork tender.
Carefully drain the sweet potatoes then place them in a large bowl. Using a potato ricer, a potato masher, or just a fork, mash the potatoes to your desired consistency. If you want more texture, you'll likely want to use the potato masher and fork (like I did).
