1. Peel potatoes and cut into 1-inch pieces. Put potatoes in a medium-large stockpot and cover with water by 2 inches.
2. Add 1 teaspoon of the salt to the pot and place over medium high heat. Bring water to a boil and allow potatoes to simmer until very tender. Drain water well and put potatoes back in stockpot.
3. Insert the mixing beaters into the Cuisinart® Hand Mixer. Mash the potatoes directly in pot starting on speed. Increase speed gradually to speed 4 until potatoes are thoroughly mashed and smooth.
4. Mix in the butter, juice, syrup, remaining salt, cinnamon, and nutmeg, using speed 4, until ingredients are completely incorporated. Taste and adjust seasoning accordingly. Serve immediately.
