1Fill a large pot with 1 inch of water and bring it to a boil over high heat. Set a steamer basket inside and reduce the heat to low so the water is simmering.
2Peel and cut the sweet and russet potatoes into large dice. Place them in the steamer, cover with a tightfitting lid, and steam until fork-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 the heat and set aside.
3When the potatoes are ready, transfer them to a large bowl, drizzle with the butter mixture, and mash with a potato masher to the desired consistency. Taste and season with salt and pepper as needed.
