Quick tip: Boiling Potatoes


Just a quick tip today!

When making mashed potatoes, I have always peeled and then chopped them into smaller pieces so that they cook more quickly. However, cutting them before boiling can cut their mineral content by as much as 50% according to researchers at the Agricultural Research Service in Wisconsin, USA. So boil them whole, and increase your family's nutrition tonight.

Thanks for the tip. Not worth the time saver if it cuts the nutrition that much. Now if only I would make mine without all the butter they might be even more nutritious!

yeah, i know! It's totally changed how i prep my potatoes now. try adding buttermilk instead of butter - it still makes them nice and creamy, but with so much less fat.
