Boil 2 pounds of potatoes; mash them with 2 ounces of butter and
4 table-spoons of boiling milk, and season with pepper and salt.
Put them into a big colander, and press them through this on to
a hot dish, and whilst doing so, shake the colander every minute
or so, that the potatoes may fall lightly like rice. Serve piping hot, with broiled steak or sausages.
