Recipe Info

  1. Boil the potatoes with the skins on until fork tender. Remove from heat, cool slightly and remove the skins...they should slide off. Pass the peeled and still hot potatoes through a food mill as you'll see in the can pass them into the same pan you used to boil them.

  2. Put the pan back on the burner on low heat and slowly begin adding the butter. Mix thoroughly until all the butter is finally incorporated. Then, slowly add the milk to the consistency you like. Continue mixing...a large rubber spatula works well. You can slightly lighten the potatoes by whisking once the butter is consumed by the potatoes. Salt to taste.
