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)
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.
