5 medium Carisma* potatoes, peeled and chopped in quarters
Big pot of boiling water, enough to cover potatoes
1/4 cup of buttermilk
2 tablespoons of butter (No nonsense substitutes please!)
Enough full cream milk to make mash smooth and creamy
Zest of half a medium lemon
Cracked black pepper
Salt to taste
Boil the potatoes in the water until floury starch gathers on the edge of your pot. Drain the boiling water away. Add the buttermilk, butter, lemon zest, pepper and salt to taste. Mash, stir, mash. Add dribbles of milk. Mash until your potato looks like cream. Mmmm. Delicious.
* Carisma is a newly released low carb potato stocked in Coles supermarkets in Australia, but any floury potato would work in this recipe.
