Mashed potatoes - no lumps - Johns recipes
Some like to leave the skin on potatoes and some like lumpy mashed potatoes. I don’t care for either of those myself.
My way: Mash potato - No lumps
Do use Russets or Idaho potatoes, cut up.
Do add some salt to water.
Cover potatoes with cold water.
Gently boil potatoes until soft, drain water, return pan to medium heat a few minutes and stir to dry excess water on potatoes.
Use slightly warm melted butter and warm milk to during mashing.
Avoid over-mashing potatoes.
