Peel the potatoes and cut them into ¾ to 1 inch chunks. Please note, keeping the skin on is actually healthier. If you don’t mind the skin (which I don’t), consider leaving them one for an extra boost in nutrients.
Place at least 1 inch of water in a medium pot and bring the water to a boil. Pro tip: Make sure the water has the ability to cover your potatoes completely once the potatoes have been added.
Add potatoes to the boiling water.
Remember to add a pinch of salt to your taste. Without the salt, boiled potatoes can be a bit bland. Salt (and other seasonings) is your friend here!
Reduce to a medium heat and cook the potatoes for about 15 to 20 minutes until they are fork tender. Fork tender means that you should be easily able to easily able to piece your sweet potatoes with a fork.
Carefully drain the hot water from the potatoes and use the sweet potatoes as desired.
