What are some mashing tips?

Drain and peel boiled or steamed potatoes. Mash using a potato masher, electric mixer, ricer, or food processor. Gradually add some milk and beat until light and fluffy. The amount of milk used will depend on the texture and moistness of the potatoes. If you add hot milk to potatoes when you are mashing them, they won't become heavy, lumpy or soggy. Cold milk tends to cause the starch in the potato to form a solid. Butter, salt and pepper or other seasonings may be added "to taste".
