Ingredients

  • 3 pounds Yukon Gold potatoes (about 12 medium)
  • 1 tablespoon salt
  • 1 cup buttermilk
  • 1/2 cup snipped fresh chives
  • Black or white pepper to taste

Preparation

  1. Peel potatoes, if desired, and cut into 2-inch chunks. Place the potatoes and salt in a large heavy saucepan. Add cold water to cover by 2 inches. Bring to a boil. Reduce heat to simmer, cover, and cook until potatoes are very tender, 10 to 15 minutes. Drain well.
  2. Transfer the potatoes to a large bowl. Mash with a potato masher, an electric hand-held mixer or by working through a ricer.
  3. Stir buttermilk, chives, and pepper into the potatoes.
