Another recipe from Between You and Me

by Heidi Holtan

Last Saturday on Between You and Me KAXE listeners told stories and shared recipes to get ready for Thanksgiving. Among my favorites - sisters who each called in to tell me about their tradition of wrestling for a piece of pie after the meal.  Also,  a science teacher called in to tell us how to make PERFECT mashed potatoes.  I tried it last night, and she IS right.  Here's the gist of what she told us on the air:

Peel and cube potatoes.

soak cubed potatoes in cold water.

Boil a pot of water with a strainer basket in it.

Steam cubed potatoes until they are about 1/2 way done.

Take them out until they are cold - then steam them again.  (I might have messed up on this step - I put them back in cold water to make them cold)

Rice potatoes.

Whip them by hand or with a mixer with your favorite ingredients - butter, buttermilk, sour cream, garlic, bacon, peanut butter.  No one is judging here.

WA-LA!  Best mashed potatoes EVER.
