Step 1

Peel and cut the sweet and russet potatoes into a large dice. Boil until tender, about 20 minutes.

Meanwhile, place the remaining measured ingredients in a small saucepan over low heat, season with pepper, and stir until the butter and honey have melted. Remove from heat and set aside.

When the potatoes are ready, put them through a ricer into a large bowl, drizzle with the butter mixture, and give a final mix.

Taste and season with salt and pepper as needed.
