... the potato mash!
We had an abundance of potatoes from the past two weeks of our CSA and I knew I need to do something before they rotted. I decided to make a huge batch of mashed potatoes and freeze what we didn't. I started with what amounted to (cut up) 8 cups of potatoes. After boiling and mashing I tapped into my inner Paula Deen and got to work. I used a large table spoon for my measuring ... so in other words - I didn't really measure. There was about 3 large spoonfuls of unsalted butter (that makes it OK right?!), 3 spoonfuls of fat free sour cream (again - let's keep the illusion of healthy cooking going), and a heavy pour of 2% milk. After getting the consistency I was hoping for (creamy but with lumps) I added my secret ingredient. My go to when I want something to be delish. If you don't have this in your pantry, you should. Are you ready ...
It is the most versatile spice blend I've ever used. We add it to veggies, fish, potatoes (obviously), and eggs. It's worth the cost + shipping to add it to your stock of goodies. I gave it away as Christmas presents last year - that's how much I (((love))) it.
We gobbled up quite bit that night but I still had enough left over to put two containers into the freezer. I use a dry erase marker to write on the lids so there are no surprises come fall. I think I'm going to chuckle each time I open my freezer and get a peek at this ...
So tell me, what do you have in your freezer ;-)
