What makes a great mash?
To make your mash the best mash it can be, you need a few essentials:
Use the right potatoes! Choose a variety intended for boiling or mashing, such as Russets, Desiree or Maris Piper.
Fresh, creamy butter is essential to the perfect mash. Don’t be shy with the butter when making mashed potatoes – the fattiness of the butter will give it that smooth mouthfeel you’re after.
Milk or cream
Adding milk or cream adds moisture and helps to smooth the texture of the mash.
Salt and pepper
Season, season, season! Never be shy with your seasonings – potatoes love salt!
