Mashed Potatoes Recipe

Boil or steam the potatoes until they are sufficiently cooked, and are mealy and dry. Carefully take out any discolored places there can be upon them, beat them with a wooden spoon or masher, whilst beating; add a small bit of salt, a piece of butter, and 1 or 2 table-spoons of boiling milk or cream. When the beaten potatoes are quite smooth and free from lumps, put them into a saucepan, and beat them over the stove for a minute or two, till they are light and quite hot. Dish them lightly, and draw the fork backwards over them to roughen the surface.
