Peel your sweet potatoes. Place them in the instant pot bowl along with the salt and water or chicken broth
Fasten the lid tight and press the manual button on your instant pot and select 5 mins. Go about fixing the rest of your dinner.
When the 5 mins is up, let the steam out of the instant pot right away. I like to put a cloth over the steam hole so the steam doesn't go crazy. Open up the lid and take out the instant pot bowl. Strain the sweet potatoes really well and then put them back into the pot.
Mash the potatoes with a wooden spoon or a fork. They will mash really easily. If you feel like you have a bit too much water left in the pot, press the saute button and let it cook a bit of the water out while you stir it.
Pour into a serving dish and serve piping hot with butter!
Serving these with a compound butter like Honey Cinnamon Butter, or Herb and Roasted Garlic Butter or any others you might find, make a simple dish like this really classy and fit for guests.
