DIRECTIONS

  • Place cut potatoes in a 6-quart saucepan and cover with cold water. Add 1 teaspoon sea salt, cover and bring to a simmer. Cook for 20 minutes.
  • Meanwhile, in a small saucepan over low heat, melt butter with cream, 1 tablespoon sea salt, and a pinch of white pepper.
  • When potatoes are cooked thoroughly (remove a piece and taste to ensure tenderness), drain in a colander. While still hot, pass potatoes through a food mill with a medium sieve attachment, or through a potato ricer, and put back into the pot in which they were cooked.
  • Slowly pour the warm butter-cream mixture into the potatoes; incorporate gently with a wooden spoon. Taste and adjust seasoning. Garnish with fresh chives or basil. Serve immediately.
