Adventures in Potato Mashing

Only I would cut myself with a spoon whilst mashing potatoes.

The fact I was using a spoon probably has a lot to do with why I cut myself in the first place. I do recommend, however, trying mashed potatoes my way:

Step 1: Pre-heat oven to about 200 degrees celcius.

Step 2: Roast as many potatoes that you feel you need, whole, until soft (so a fork or skewer can be easily pushed through them)

Step 3: Take potatoes out of the oven and allow to cool slightly. Slice in half

Step 4: Take a sieve and pot. Push potatoes through seive using a large spoon.

Step 5: Discard potato skins. Add a dash of milk and a bit of butter to taste.

Step 6: Stir and serve!

It is best to work really quickly after step 3, unless you enjoy cold mashed potato. Pro tip: Don’t cut your finger open on the spoon. Potato isn’t the most fun to clean out of a gash.

I am now going to enjoy my potatoes and be very thankful I didn’t get any blood or finger bits in it!
