Recipe's preparation

  1. Let's talk about mash potatoes - potato mash 🥔You've probably heard a lot about it being made in the Thermomix and as people are different - so are their preferences when it comes on how do they like their mashed potatoes. Fair enough. So I'd like to show you how I make mine, as the outcome is exactly how my family likes it:

    1 kg potatoes peeled cut in 1-2 cm cubes
    280 g milk
    100 g Butter (salted)
    1 pinch salt (I only use pink Himalayan)
    1 pinch nutmeg (can't have a mash without it)

    No Butterfly - we like it with a few pieces in it, but if you prefer it completely creamy, add the butterfly before cooking. Just be aware, the potato pieces might knock it off... so “cooking with your ears” is essential here...

    25 min/100C/reverse!/speed 1/steaming basket instead of measuring cup

    Reverse is important because the knifes tend to cut the starches out of the potatoes during cooking and this will make the mash "gooey".

Always cook, mix, whip,... your mash on reverse to avoid gluggy consistency.
