How to make mashed potatoes:
Put a pot of water on the fire, add bay leaves and peppercorns (not ground) to the water. Be sure to count the number of peppercorns and bay leaves so that later you know for sure whether you have taken out all the spices.
50% of the taste of mashed potatoes will depend on how tasty the potatoes from which you are preparing the mashed potatoes are. Cut the peeled potatoes into several parts (do not chop finely).
When the water boils, we send the potatoes to boiling water! Cook the potatoes over medium heat, covered. The water should not gurgle too much. Cook the potatoes until soft, about 20 minutes. Salt at the end, 3-5 minutes until tender.
We drain the water immediately, do not leave the potatoes in the water. We remove the bay leaf and pepper.
While the potatoes are hot, crush them with a crush, do not add anything yet.
In the meantime, we warm up the milk - it must be hot! If you add cold milk, the puree will be gray in color.
Add a piece of butter to the potatoes, mix.
We try mashed potatoes and, if you need to add salt, then dissolve the salt in milk.
Little by little, pour hot milk into the potatoes, mix until the desired consistency of mashed potatoes.
The mashed potatoes are ready. Enjoy your meal!
