|Preparation||Cooking||Start to finish|
|50 min.||45 min.||1 hour 35 min.|
|1||Wash 1 kg potatoes but don't peel them. Put on to boil in a large pan of lightly-salted water.
The potatoes are cooked when a knife blade goes through them easily.
|2||Remove them from the water as soon as they are cooked (don't leave them to cool in the water, they might take on an unpleasant taste).||2 min.|
|3||As soon as they are cool enough to handle, peel them and remove any small blemishes (the "eyes" of the potato).||5 min.|
|4||Cut into pieces and pass through a vegetable mill using the finest setting.
If you don't have a vegetable mill, use a potato masher (a sort of grid on a handle), but it's hard work.
|5||Put the mashed potatoes in a pan.||2 min.|
|6||Stir constantly over low heat for 4 or 5 minutes to dry the purée.
This is to improve the texture.
|7||Then add 125 g butter cut into small pieces, a little at a time, stirring well until the butter is completely incorporated.||3 min.|
|8||Add 125 g cream and mix again thoroughly.||2 min.|
|9||Salt and pepper. Your potato purée is ready.
Already quite delicious just as it is, you can serve it "Irish style", for example, with a little chopped chives.
|10||You can improve it even further by passing it through a sieve. It's long and tiring...||20 min.|
|11||...but you'll have the finest, smoothest potato purée ever.|
