Ingredients

3 potatoes
salt
1 cup milk
2 ounces of butter

Ingredients

Steps

1
Done

Wash and peel off the skins of the potatoes. Drop them aside for later-on usage.

2
Done

Slice the potatoes and add them into a large bowl of cold water, for 5 minutes, to remove the starch.

3
Done

Bring a large pot of water to a boil. Measure the temperature using a kitchen thermometer and let it reach 161°F/72°C. Throw in the potatoes and boil them for 30 minutes.

4
Done

When ready, move them in a separate bowl filled with cold water and let them rest for another 10 minutes.

5
Done

Bring another saucepan with water to a boil, but this time, let it reach 212°F/100°C. Add a pinch of salt and boil the potatoes for 10 more minutes. Remove the potatoes from the heat.

6
Done

In a small saucepan, heat the milk. Add the potato skins and boil them in milk for 5 minutes, then strain it.

7
Done

Move the potatoes in a bowl and mash them, using a potato masher. Pour the milk over and mash thoroughly.

8
Done

If you like your mashed potatoes extra-creamy, use a strainer to smoothen it up.

9
Done

Finally, add the butter. Use a fork and stir until you get a smooth and silky consistency.

I guess I’ve always had a passion for cooking ever since I was a kid when I was mom’s little helper in the kitchen. Even though I wasn’t actually cooking, I was a picky eater, and I focused on bringing more flavor to her dishes, by adding extra herbs and spices I felt might enrich it. Time has passed, and I haven’t changed that much: I am now my girlfriend’s helper.
