Oh man was this good! My very first time cooking sweet potatoes, and it was fabulous! I used an electric (digital) pressure cooker with an elevated "rack," and set it to 10 minutes instead of 8. Might have been just a wee bit too long, but it was still amazing. Also added a bit of cream and brown sugar to the mix after mashing. My husband was so impressed he asked me to make it again. Thanks for yet another wonderful recipe.

It was good. It turned out a little watery though and not as creamy as I had hoped for.

This was a great hit tonight. My daughter who doesn't care for sweet potatoes at all, states she not only enjoyed it, but would eat it again. I did add cream at the time I added the honey,salt, etc... I think it made it a bit smoother in texture. Thanks so much!
