Some of you will remember that I won a gift certificate to Williams-Sonoma last year. It was really hard to decide what to do with it! I finally settled on an All-Clad Food Mill and purchased it last week.
Ever since I made a tomato sauce recipe that called for a food mill, I have wanted to get one. Just think of the lovely sauces and purees I can make! No more pressing cooked berries through a sieve to remove the seeds!
I inaugurated my new food mill last night by making mashed potatoes (or should I call them “milled potatoes”).
After the potatoes were cooked, I drained them and quickly put them in the food mill, which was placed over the same pan the potatoes cooked in.
This is how the potatoes looked after running them through the mill:
I gently stirred in some milk, butter, salt and pepper and ended up with the smoothest mashed potatoes I have ever made!
