Before starting, preheat your broiler to high and wash and dry all produce. Combine sweet potatoes, 1 tsp salt and enough water to cover (approximately 1-2 inches) in a large pot. Cover and bring to a boil over high heat. Once boiling, reduce heat to medium. Simmer, uncovered, until sweet potatoes are fork-tender, 10-12 min.
