Basic Cooking Tip of The Week

How to make mashed potatoes:
You will need one good size russet potato per person. In a large pot boil enough water to cover potatoes. Peel potatoes, if you like the skin you can leave a little on. Chop into about 2 inch pieces. Add to water, boil until tender enough for a fork to pierce potato easily. Drain, put potatoes in a stand up mixer, back in pan or a large bowl. Now the rest you do by your taste. Add butter, milk, salt and pepper. If using a stand up mixer, use the paddle, and turn on low. If you don't have a stand up mixer you can mash potatoes in a large bowl with a potato masher. Or you can use a hand held mixer. Beat or mash potatoes and other ingredients until smooth. Taste them once smooth and add extra butter, milk, salt or pepper as needed. Enjoy!
