Peel the sweet potatoes and give them a good rinse.

Dice the sweet potatoes into 1-inch pieces. Make sure they are equal sizes, this way they all require the same amount of cooking time when you boil them.

Add the diced sweet potatoes to a saucepan and cover them with cold water. Bring the water to a boil over high heat. Boil the sweet potatoes until they are tender to a fork. It should take 15 minutes.

Drain the water from the sweet potatoes and return them to the pan. Mash the sweet potatoes with a potato masher until they are smooth.

Stir in the butter, milk, cinnamon, cayenne pepper and season to taste with salt and pepper.
