Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Peel, and roughly chop potatoes into equal sized chunks.
  2. Place potatoes in a pot and add water to cover. Add a few dashes of salt.
  3. Bring potatoes to a boil until easily pierced with a fork, approximately 10 minutes depending on the size of your chunks.
  4. Drain cooking water from the potatoes and place them in a large bowl. Cover them with a cloth dishtowel to further absorb moisture.
  5. Combine the butter and cream in a saucepan over medium high heat. Scald the cream mixture just until steaming (do not boil).
  6. Remove the dishtowel and pour 1/2 the hot cream mixture into the bowl with the potatoes.
  7. Using a potato masher or a hand mixer, mash and blend the potatoes and cream until smooth and fluffy.
  8. Add the rest of the hot cream as desired and mix for creamier potatoes.
