  • Stir potatoes over medium heat until dry (a film of starch will form on bottom of pot), about 1 minute. Remove from heat.

  • In a small saucepan, combine half-and-half and butter; bring to a simmer over medium heat. Pour half of hot liquid over potatoes. Mash just until smooth, adding more liquid to reach desired consistency. Stir in parsley and chives; season with salt. Garnish with more herbs.

Im from a farm and milk cows, then take the milk to a machine called a seperator which seperated the milk from the cream. Now we have 1 bucket of milk and 1 bucket of cream. Living in town you will have to buy cream and milk in seperate cartoons. Take 1 cup milk and 1 cup cream and mix together thus making "half and half" use it for your recipe and either drink the rest or put in coffee.

It's a mixture of half milk and half cream. If your store doesn't carry it in the dairy case, you can substitute equal parts milk and cream.
