Simple Mashed Potatoes

This is an easy way to make the best
tasting and creamiest mashed potatoes.
I use Yukon Gold for making this.
The simplest way to mash them is using
a potato masher but a ricer works too.

6 cups cold water
1 teaspoon salt
8 potatoes, peeled
3 tablespoons unsalted butter
1 cup milk, about
1/2 teaspoon ground black pepper

Place water in a soup pot, add salt, set aside.
Peel each potato and rinse under cold water
before cutting into 2" pieces and adding
the cut potatoes into the salted water.
Bring water to a boil on high heat,
then reduce heat to a high simmer.
Cook potatoes for about 20 minutes
or until they are fork tender.
Drain water then add in butter and
milk to cooked potatoes in pot.
Season with salt and pepper to taste.
Use a potato masher to mash potatoes
to your desired creamy texture.
At this point you can add in other flavorings
such as dried parsley, chives, onion or garlic.
