    Ethan UK's Note:

    A very different mashed potato. How my mum used to do it when I was a kid. Sweet and herby, goes great with poultry or fish (probably pork too), with mustard and pickles. Herbs can be varied to suit what you're serving it with.

    Seasoning

    Directions:

    1. 1
      Wash the potatoes and peel if preferred. Mum did, I don't. I think they're much nicer unpeeled. All the vitamin C is in the peel.
    2. 2
      Cube potatoes and boil until soft - about 8 minutes.
    3. 3
      Meanwhile, place apples and a little water into a microwaveable bowl and microwave for a couple of minutes until soft. Alternatively boil apples and a little water in a saucepan.
    4. 4
      When potatoes are cooked, drain, return to saucepan and add butter or oil.
    5. 5
      Mash potatoes, removing all lumps.
    6. 6
      Mash softened apples slightly with a fork and stir into mashed potato.
    7. 7
      Add chosen herb or herbs. My personal favourite is sprinkles of oregano and basil plus a pinch of garlic powder or onion seeds. Was unable to add Chinese 5-Spice when entering ingredients for some reason, but that can be nice too sometimes, especially with fish.
    8. 8
      Return pan of mashed potatoes to stove and heat gently for a couple of minutes to warm them back up again and serve.
    9. 9
      Sometimes a little milk can be good in with this when re-heating after the mashing. Once more it kind of depends what you're serving it with.
    10. 10
      Enjoy!

      This was great. I used fresh Oregano and Basil and it was a lovely combination. I think the problem Kumquat had with the apples being too firm might be due to using eating apples rather than cookers. I used Bramley apples, and the texture and flavour were fantastic.

      This recipe has great potential and with a bit of tweaking deserves 5 stars. I boiled the apples with the potatoes for about 3-4 minutes but they were not yet soft or mashable. The potatoes mashed fine though. I used 3 granny smith apples and 1 large potato but I would change that to 2 apples and 2 potatoes. Be sure to cut the apples into thin, small pieces to be incorporated with the mashed potatoes (had I sliced them thinner they may have softened better, but recipe did not specify). I used butter, oregano, basil, garlic, lime juice, salt and pepper to flavor and I mixed in about 1/3 cup low fat cheddar (grated) because I thought it would go well with the apple and herbs, which it did very well:D Thanks for the recipe, I will try this again!
