  • Pierce the sweet potato with a fork on all sides. Microwave on high until very tender and the flesh is easily pierced with a fork, about 4 minutes per side. Let stand 5 minutes until cool enough to handle.
  • Meanwhile, in a medium microwave-safe bowl, add the butter, milk, maple syrup, kosher salt, and ground cinnamon. Microwave to heat through, 50-60 seconds. Don’t allow the mixture to boil.
  • On a cutting board, use your fingers to peel the cooked sweet potato. Roughly mash it with a fork right on the cutting board, then transfer the mash to the bowl with the butter mixture.
  • Keep mixing and mashing with a fork (or with a hand masher) until the sweet potato mash is uniform and smooth, about 1 more minute. It won't be perfectly smooth unless you use a hand mixer or an immersion blender. But I like it a bit rustic. When done mixing, I do like to use a rubber spatula to smooth it out, as shown in the video below.

  • Put a large steamer into a large pot with the water level just below it. Over high heat, bring the water to a boil and then add sweet potatoes to the rack. Turn the heat to low, cover, and steam until the sweet potatoes are very tender, about 15 minutes. (You can stick a fork into one of the pieces to see how tender they are -- it should easily slide right out when they're done.)
  • Add the sweet potatoes -- along with the butter, ginger, brown sugar, and cinnamon -- to a large mixing bowl and use a very large fork or potato masher to mash them. They can be as smooth or as chunky as you'd like -- mine are mostly smooth with a few chunks. (This must be done while they're still hot, so that the butter melts in nicely.)
