Backwoods Mashed Potatoes

This mashed potato recipe came from a gentleman, Mr. Jim, that lives around Loretta Lynns place close to the Tennessee River. It's a prime example of what a Southern recipe is best known for, taking hardly nothing and making something delicious out of it. If you don't believe me, try this recipe.


BACKWOODS MASHED POTATOES
  • Peel 4 medium potatoes and cut into 1 to 1-1/2 inch cubes
  • water
  • 1 stick butter
  • salt
  • pepper
Bring water and potatoes to a boil in a large saucepan making sure potatoes are completely covered in water. Season with salt and pepper. Boil until potatoes are fork tender. Drain potatoes catching all the liquid in a bowl. In the saucepan or in a bowl, add the potatoes and butter and coarsely mash with a potato masher. Pour out most of the caught liquid leaving the whitish potato residue and about 1/2 cup liquid. Slowly pour this over the potatoes and mash until creamy. Serve while hot.

Notes:
  1. The potatoes have such a rich flavor due to the starchy residue left in the pan during the boiling of the potatoes.
  2. Around Loretta Lynns place, there are a lot of hallers. A haller is a little valley.
  3. Country folks know you don't walk into someone's haller unless you expect to be chased off with a shotgun.

Loretta is one in a million - I loved 'Van Lear Rose'.

Thanks for leaving a comment. Everyone around Dickson TN and the surrounding area loves Loretta. She gives free concerts and has a public swimming pool for the local kids on her Ranch. Sometimes you'll spot her outside walking barefoot with no make-up on, a real down to earth person. We heard recently she has re-married. A precher. Pam

If you thought cheap nfl jerseys No. 16 Arkansas was going to give top-ranked Alabama a good battle in the SEC West, well, you were out of luck Saturday night. Alabama improved to 6-0 (3-0 SEC) with a 49-30 victory that wholesale nfl jerseys never felt as the Nike Air Max 2015 Shoes final score might Nike Free Run even NFL Jerseys suggest. Nike Roshe Run Arkansas (4-2) fell to 0-2 in SEC play on a night in which they turned the football over five Nike Air Max 90 times. Against Alabama, that is far too many turnovers to have, and Alabama showed nfl jerseys store why.
