If you had to choose between instant mashed potato (rehydrated) or a tin, what would you prefer?
We have tried tinned potatoes, and even roasted, neither of us was keen. Instant potato, for us, has a lot better taste and we always have a container of it, just in case. It is also used in the ingredients to make our potato bread.
For mash, I weigh the dried flakes out, measure the liquid (using milk and water), a blob of butter, salt and pepper. Once mixed, it’s texture is great. Taste wise, with cheese, gravy or sauce, it is quite good.
Left to go cold, it can be used in fish cakes, fried in a hash and probably a myriad of other things I haven’t yet tried.
