How to Make Fluffy Mashed Potatoes and Some Serving Ideas

Close-up of mashed potato in container
The best cooks don’t make mashed potatoes by mashing, but by ricing and folding gently.
The secret lies in the amount of starch released when it comes to mashed potatoes. Release too much and potatoes become gummy. That’s why expert chefs prefer the following technique, which calls for ricing potatoes instead.

Begin with cold water
Put peeled, cut potatoes in a saucepot filled with cold water. (Adding cold potatoes to hot water can result in lumpiness.) Bring water to a boil over high heat. Then lower heat to medium, bringing water to a simmer. Cover; cook until tender. Drain well.
Use a ricer instead of mashing

Rather than mashing cooked potatoes, which can lead to gumminess because of the massive amounts of starch it releases, gently push them through a ricer. Ricing is less damaging and ruptures fewer cells, so less starch is released, and potatoes end up being light and fluffy.
Gently fold the ingredients
Another key to limiting the release of starch in mashed potatoes is how other ingredients are added. Again, a light touch is called for. Gently fold in, rather than press butter, warm milk and additional ingredients, using a sweeping downward and upward motion.
Mashed Potato Ideas
  • Fold in a diced onion, chopped fresh sage, a grated carrot and several chopped steamed cabbage leaves.
  • Fold in a bit of roasted garlic and chopped fresh rosemary.
  • Substitute sour cream for half of the milk, and fold in with chopped scallions and crumbled bacon slices.
  • Add some grated parmesan to top your mashed potato side dish.
  • For a meaty version, you may also add crushed bacon, bits of ham, pepperoni or sausages.
  • To add a spicy taste, throw in some slices of jalapeno, crushed dried red pepper, or bell peppers strips.
  • If you have left over mashed potatoes, you can modify them in the morning by mixing in ground beef, eggs, onions, salt, and pepper to suite your taste then fry them as small patties.

Salsa : 125 Awesome Salsa Recipes eBook
Because salsas use fresh ingredients, they have a certain punch of their own.  Use oranges, pineapples, and mangoes to supply the intense yet sweet flavor.

Add some crunch.
Texture adds allure to salsa.  Add in some cool cucumbers, crisp red and green peppers, refreshing celery, zesty radishes, and nutty jicama to add a bit of crunch.

Balance with tartness.
Balance the sweetness of the fruit by using acidic ingredients, such as vinegars and tomatillos.  To invigorate and enhance the flavors of the other ingredients, add a little lime or lemond juice.

Spice it up.
Hot red peppers, smoky chipotles, onions, garlic and chili powder give salsa the zing that distinguishes it from a humdrum fruit salad.  With a little “heat,” the salsa becomes a flavorful condiment.

Serve and enjoy!
However you like it, tangy, hot, or sweet, salsa can complement almost any meal imaginable.
