POTATOES

Right after my last post my internet started going in and out, apparently some one hit a pole. Anyhoo If you didn't notice I stylized the blog title a bit, it's not much but looks better then just plane text.

Also got my hands on some potatoes from my grandmothers garden and made some of the best mashed potatoes ever.

6 large russet potatoes
Stick of butter
1/2 Cup of whole milk
Salt to taste

I boiled the potatoes for 35 mins with skins and all, strained them and put them in a large bowl. My potatoes where soft enough to start smashing them with a big fork, after you got a good smash going throw in your milk and a softened stick of butter. I then used a electric hand mixer to blend everything together, this left me with smooth texture and some hardy chunks you expect from homemade mashed potatoes.

Serves 6-8 people

  2. I find that when I do shit with a blender, the mash goes cold .. then when you reheat it it just gets really dense and thick .. :\

    I used a hand mixer, also forgot to mention I warmed up the milk to help fend of cooling. I would think a blender wold OVER mix it making overly dense but I am no means a cooking expert.
