Smoked Mash Potatoes Recipe
- 4 large potatoes whole (prick them lightly with a fork a put them in a roasting tray in the oven at 160 degrees till soft all the way through)
- 150 ml Cream
- 150 grams Butter (melted gently on the stove)
- A couple of cups of oak wood shavings,old pot you don’t mind getting smokey and a colander
- The trick is to do all three steps whilst the potato is warm never letting it cool down otherwise you will end up with stretchy mash.
- After your potato has been baked quickly slice it length ways and arrange it carefully around the colander leaving wholes for smoke to get through.
- Place this over your pot of wood shavings and put it on a gas flame on a high heat till they start to smoked and cover the top of the colander with tinfoil.
- Smoke for about 5-10 minutes not forgetting that potato soaks up smoke like a sponge and can quite easily become to Smokey.
- Once your done smoking scoop all the flesh of the potato out and through a fine sieve with a back of a spoon push it through.
- A bit at a time add the melted butter and cream to your sieved potato and combine the two with the back of spoon, add some salt to your liking.
- The result should be smooth, smokey and buttery mash.
