Superb Mashed Potatoes. Linda made the most amazing mashed potatoes for our Thanksgiving feast and noted that it was adapted from a recent Sunset magazine. They always have good recipes!
Buttermilk Mashed Potatoes
Sauté garlic in hot oil in a pot over medium heat 3 minutes. Add 8 cups water, chicken broth, potatoes, and 1/4 tsp. salt; bring to a boil. Cover, reduce heat, and cook 15 to 20 minutes or until potatoes are tender.
Drain potatoes, and return to the pot. Add buttermilk, butter, pepper, and remaining 1 tsp. salt. Mash potatoes with a large fork or potato masher to desired consistency. Just barely mash, do not 'whip'. Sprinkle evenly with chives; serve immediately.
