DIRECTIONS

  • Peel and cut potatoes into approx equal size pieces.
  • Add potatoes to a saucepan of boiling water and boil until tender.
  • Drain the potatoes and return them to the saucepan.
  • Use a masher or ricer to mash the potatoes with. The longer you mash the smoother it will be (I just hate it when my mash has lumps!).
  • Add the butter and mash it into the potatoes until melted. Add the milk/cream and mash until a smooth consistency is achieved. Add more milk/cream if you would like a softer or sloppier mash.
  • Add salt and pepper to taste.
  • You can also mash in some softened onions, garlic or spring onions.
  • You can also use sweet potato (kumara) or any variety of potato to make mash with.
