The Very Best Mashed Potatoes

READY IN: 40mins
Recipe by akgrown

Butter, milk, a bit of heavy cream, and the secret ingredient-a dash of vinegar-make these the most delicious mashed potatoes ever. If you want to make them a head of time, reheat in the microwave at half-power, stirring every 3 minutes until hot. From Parents Magazine.

I didn't discern the vinegar either, but these are very good mashed potatoes nonetheless.
