Add water to a double boiler, turn to high heat. Place sliced sweet potatoes a steam basket, cover, and reduce heat to a low boil. Steam potatoes until tender, approximately 25 minutes. Remove from heat, leave covered and allow to set until slightly cooled, approximately 10 minutes.
Place potatoes in a mixing bowl and mash with a potato masher or fork. If a thinner consistency is preferred, puree in a food processor.
