Ingredients

  • 1 1/2 pounds new potatoes (4 medium), peeled and cut into 1-inch chunks
  • Coarse salt and ground pepper
  • 1/4 to 1/2 cup buttermilk
  • 2 tablespoons butter, cut into small pieces
  • Snipped chives for garnish (optional)

Directions

  1. Place potatoes in a large saucepan; add enough cold water to cover by 2 inches. Bring to a boil; add 1 tablespoon salt, and cook until potatoes are very tender when pierced with the tip of a paring knife, 20 to 25 minutes.

  2. Drain; place in a large bowl. Mash with a potato masher, then add buttermilk and butter. Season with salt and pepper. Mash until smooth and combined. If desired, garnish with snipped chives.
