How to mash sweet potato?

I know how to mash potatoes, and I usually mash sweet potatoes with butter and some spice, but I was wondering if there is another way.

  • I just use a fork to mash them as you do, with butter, cinnamon, brown sugar and a pinch of salt. I tried using a mixer once but I wouldn't recommend it. It seemed to affect the texture badly.
