Preparation

Basics for new cooks: Boiling Potatoes: Scrub or peel potatoes; place in large pot. Cover with cold water, add salt [about 1 tb for 16 cups of water.] and bay leaf. Bring to boil. Cover and boil for about 20 minutes or until fork-tender. Drain, remove bay leaf and return potatoes to pot over low heat for 30 seconds to evaporate excess moisture. Mashed Potatoes: In pot, mash together potatoes, buttermilk, butter, salt and pepper until smooth.

Simple to make, and taste great. We like it with the buttermilk and used 4 Tbs of butter.
