Kitchen gadget of the day – the potato ricer

There are times when you feel like mashed potatoes with lumps for texture, and others when you feel like smooth, almost whipped potatoes. I pulled out the potato ricer from the back of my cupboard to make the mash for bangers and mash tonight, and forgot just how wonderfully creamy and fluffy potatoes can get with the ricer.

And there’s also something very satisfying about watching the ribbons of mash come out of the ricer – perhaps a throwback from growing up and making Vegemite and butter “worms” squiggle out of the holes from between two Vita Wheat biscuits.

Add a generous dollop of butter and season to taste with salt and you can’t get much better than that as part of your Sunday dinner.
