Peel the sweet potatoes and cut into 2 inch chunks
Place potatoes in a medium saucepan
Cover them with water and bring to a boil, reduce and simmer until potatoes are very tender.
Drain the potatoes and return them to the pot. Place the pan over low heat add brown sugar butter and salt. Using a fork or device of your choice, mash the potatoes so that they are nearly smooth and the butter and sugar are fully incorporated. Set aside.
