very simple: I guess my age is showing cause this something we had as kids and I fix them once in awhile this time of year. Being raised in So. California we had a lot of fresh vegetables growing up. Mom would buy peas in the shell and we would shell them. She would cook them just a few minutes, then cook the small new potatoes (have to be small ones) peel them and mix them with the peas. She would make a white sauce, pour over the peas and potatoes and heat them. Oh they were so good. Today, we make them but we use frozen peas.

Why couldn't this be done without peeling the potatoes?

You guys make mashed potatoes with unpeeled potatoes? I like mine smooth.

it depends on the kind of potatoes you use. for example I like to make potato salad with red skinned potatoes for the extra bit of color the skins give. some other dishes I use a peeled potato. I always peel russets. those skins are tough.

I'm looking as well. I found this one, but it's stiff. It would also require an extension. I wish more people liked the idea; we'd have more suggestions. I definitely want to try this.

'Cause that ain't the way Mama did it!

Don't we all do this? When we want comfort food, lots of times it's something Mama made when we were growing up, and it's got to be made just like she made it.

I have to admit, though, I've tweaked my Nanny's potato soup recipe and it is now better than hers was. She was too much into trying to stretch it to feed as many people as possible....plus, she didn't "develop flavor"....she just dumped it all together in the water and boiled away. I've started frying some salt pork or smoked hog something-or-others first, then caramelizing the onions, carrots, and celery a bit before adding the potatoes. That's what Lidia always does with most of her recipes.

In my case, hell, no. My mother hated to cook. We had instant mashed potatoes. There is nothing I cook that is "just like she made it."
