Ingredients

  • 3 lbs potatoes (thin-skinned – white, red or Yukon, scrubbed, skins on)
  • ½3/4  cup sour cream,  more to taste (or use vegan substitute – Kite Hill’s Sour Cream is a good option.)
  • 4 tablespoons butter (or vegan butter)
  • 1 teaspoon kosher salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon pepper
  • 23 teaspoons granulated garlic (or  use 1020 whole roasted garlic cloves, mashed )

Instructions

  1. Cut potatoes in half (if bigger, quarter) and cover with an inch of water, in a large pot.
  2. Add 2 teaspoons salt.
  3. Bring to a boil, cover and simmer on medium-low heat, about 20 minutes, or until fork-tender.
  4. Drain, saving 1 cup of potato water.
  5. Place potatoes back in the pot (or slow cooker), mash well, then using the masher, whisk in the butter, sour cream, salt, pepper, garlic option of choice, and optional horseradish.
  6. Add a little potato water to loosen, starting with 1/2 cup, adding more as needed. ( If keeping these warm for an extended period of time, add the full cup of water).
  7. Taste and adjust salt and pepper to your liking.
  8. Cover and keep warm in a 180F oven.
  9. When ready to serve, stir, sprinkle with pepper, chives and a drizzle of melted butter before serving.
