    Hi Justchatting and Maida

    Thanks for you posts.

    Inregards to the mashing and the butterfly whisk. No you don't need to use the butterfly whisk, just follow the recipe as is.

    And the best type of potatoes to use are starchy potatoes or old potatoes.

    Kind Regards

    Hi, you say mash for 10 seconds, but is this with or without the butterfly whisk?

    Thanks

  • Although these tasted good ,

    Submitted by Maida on 6. March 2016 - 14:02.

    Although these tasted good , as I was making them I thought they would be a disaster. There were bits of potato in the mix.  I had to add a lot of flour. I used Coles Baby Royal Blue potatoes. Are you able to tell me if these are the blue potatoes in the recipe? I want to try this recipe again as I have had a lot of success with ricotta gnocchi and would like to master these too.

    I found a similar recipe with speed 4 for cooking for the potatoes. I did this, and checked it after 15 minutes as I was a little concerned. Sure enough, I had potato water. I should have checked earlier, and I should have used this recipe!! Now, to think about what I can do with potato water.

    Fantastic! I made the gnocchi wheat free by using spelt flour. Turned out very nice! I might of used more flour to get it not so stickey.

    Love Gnocchi! We normally add half a bag of baby spinach and handful of basil at the same time as adding the flour, turns out amazing with the pasta sauce in EDC! Definately a favourite in our house!
