whole Russet or Yukon Gold potatoes
fresh whole milk
sea salt and black pepper
a pinch of nutmeg
finely chopped parsley/chives
Place the potatoes in a large pot, cover with cold water and add 1 teaspoon of salt. Bring to a boil, uncover and simmer for about 20-30 min, or until the potatoes are tender and cooked through.
Once the potatoes are ready, drain in a colander and peel whilst still hot. In the meantime, warm up your milk.
Place the potatoes in a large bowl, add in softened butter and mash with the help of a potato masher.
Slowly pour the warmed milk in, and continue to mash the potatoes until reaching the desired texture. Season with salt and pepper to taste and a pinch of nutmeg if you like.
Sprinkle with fresh herbs (optional) and serve your mashed potatoes immediately.
