Instructions Checklist

  • Remove from heat. Remove the basket and drain the water. Return the potatoes to the pot and stir over low heat until dry, about 2 minutes. Pass the potatoes through a potato ricer into a large bowl. (Alternatively, mash potatoes in the pot with a potato masher.) Add buttermilk, butter, salt and pepper and stir gently to combine. Serve immediately or cover to keep warm.
