Puree Of Potatoes Florentine



Try to cook this puree by 'boiling some floury potatoes; when cooked drain and put them back into the saucepan. Dry them a while over the fire, mash them and add butter, salt and pepper. Then little by little add some warm milk and whip the potatoes with a whip. Do all this over a moderate fire, taking care that the puree does not catch. Go on whipping and adding milk until you have a puree the consistency of a very thick cream; the drier the potatoes are when you begin, the more milk they will absorb and the more creamy the puree will be.'
