Garlicky Potato Mash

Garlicky Mashed Potatoes

Our first days of Winter this year have broken records for low overnight temperatures, and immediately one’s attention turns to wintery ingredients and dishes. Parsnips, Barley, Potatoes, Celeriac. Mung Beans, Fava Beans. And indeed, Mashed Potato.

This is a simple twist to the humble but delicious mash. It adds garlic, – use smoked garlic if you have it – to potatoes as they cook, and then makes them delicious and luxurious with butter and cream. Winter, welcome!

Garlicky Mashed Potatoes

Garlicky Potato Mash

Add garlic cloves with Desiree or other potatoes to salted boiling water – use about 0.5 – 1 clove garlic for each medium potato that has been peeled and halved.  Cook until the potatoes are tender. Drain and mash with cream and butter – 75ml cream for 25g butter works for 4 medium potatoes. Season with salt and white pepper. Stir until all is well combined.
