  • 19 Red Potatoes, chopped 
  • 10 Carrots, chopped 
  • 1 Onion, chopped 
  • 3 Apples, cored and chopped 

*** A few more ingredients are below

Make It!

Kitchen Tidbit #1. 

When boiling water for mashed potatoes or any other vegetable...Instead of tossing the water, use it to make a pot of soup. Or at least let it cool and feed it to your chickens.

Bring to a boil all the above ingredients in a large stock pot. 

When they are tender, drain off the water. 

Mash them as you would regular mashed potatoes. Here's what I recommend adding to them...

Second Ingredients List:

  • Salt & Pepper, to taste
  • 1.5 cups butter 
  • 1-4 cloves Fresh minced garlic 
  • Optional: A little milk to make them a little more moist 
  • Optional: Any herbs or spices you feel like adding!

Notes:

  • Kitchen Tidbit #2. When it comes to peeling vegetables think twice. If you don’t need to peel it don’t! There is nothing wrong with skins on potatoes, carrots, & broccoli, etc. I only peel if the skins are bad. The nutrients in the skins don’t need to be wasted. And mashed potatoes are great with the skins on! :-)
  • Kitchen Tidbit #3. Use the hand blender to blend up your mashed potatoes! Make sure there is enough moisture in the potatoes so they blend nicely. (AKA butter, milk, and/or broth, etc.)

So simple and yet so delicious! They are a great way to enjoy mashed potatoes with a little variety. :-)
