Everyone loves mash in our house especially with lots of cream and butter added. Chives from the garden are also a popular addition.
Chive Mash – serves 6 generously
- 1kg potatoes, peeled and cut into chunks
- 8 tbsp double cream
- 50g butter
- 6 tbsp snipped chives
Cover the potatoes with cold water and a good pinch of salt and bring to the boil. Cook for 15-20 minutes or until tender, then drain in a colander and return to the warm pan to dry.
Gently heat the cream in a small saucepan, then add the butter and pour over the potatoes. Season with salt and freshly ground white pepper. Add the chives and beat with a wooden spoon until fluffy.
