It’s Cooking 101 and today’s lesson is Mashed Potatoes
- Cut potatoes in uniform pieces. Add cold water to cover and bring to a boil.
- Very important to use cold water, hot makes them mushy as they cook faster
on the outside before cooking through to the inside.
- Turn down to simmer and test with a knife by poking one, if it falls off
they are done…if not a few minutes more…generally speaking 30 min.
- Heat all dairy to be added in advance…butter, cream cheese, sour cream, milk
heavy cream, half and half…so as not to add cold and potatoes cool down.
