Salt 2 teaspoons
3oz of butter

Peel potatoes, wash, cut in to equal size pieces, add to saucepan with salt, cover with water,  bring to boil and biol till tender.  When tender  place in colander, drain and leave to sit to remove excess water and steam.  Place back in saucepan and mash the potatoes.

Heat the milk and melt butter, add slowly while mashing potatoes.
