Only a day late. A trip to the orthodontist and a blown fuse in my car interfered with life yesterday. Here's an alternative to the same boring mashed potatoes. I came up with this recipe as a way to use the bushels of red potatoes from my garden.
Butter and Herb Mashed Red Potatoes
4 large red potatoes, scrubbed, trimmed but not peeled, cut into 1-inch chunks
1/4 cup butter or margarine
1/3-1/2 cup milk
Rinse the chopped potatoes in cold water and drain. Add enough cold water to cover and about 1 teaspoon salt. Let stand up to two hours. Heat on high until boiling. Reduce heat and continue to boil until potatoes are soft. Drain.
Add 1/2 teaspoon salt, a few shakes of pepper, 1 tablespoon parsley, margarine, and milk. Mash until mixed but not smooth. I use a hand masher. Makes about 6 servings.
