Hate it When Your Foods Touch? You Could Be Suffering From This Food Phobia.

  Hate it When Your Foods Touch? You Could Be Suffering From This Food Phobia. Don't let anxieties control your ability to enjoy delicious eats. Taste of Home has a simple solution.The term is brumotactillophobia, and it's a mild form of obsessive-compulsive disorder. The fear begins with your taste buds—the need to taste food separately is a pretty standard gut response. However, when a person with brumotactillophobia begins to worry about foods touching each other, this fixation becomes the focal point of the meal. Over time, the mind makes a habit out of preemptively worrying before food has even hit the plate.

The ultimate mashed potatoes are made with these Canadian spuds.

Move over russet potatoes . These long, large potatoes with white flesh are usually considered the best for both mashing and frying because they’re starchy (they’re McDonald’s potato of choice). Photo, Erik Putz. Yukon Gold are the best potatoes for mashing .

Source:www.dummies.com The Best Potatoes For Mashing ( Nope , They're Not Not Russets ) Apr 6th, 2018 Which Potatoes Are Best For Mashing ? Many People Use Russets For Their Mashed Potatoes , But This Variety Yields A Tastier, Creamier Mash .

Nope , they're not Idaho potatoes . Or fingerlings. This way for next-level spuds. Idaho potatoes (a.k.a. russets ) on the other hand are less ideal for mashing . They don’t love being cooked in water, because their crazy-high starchiness absorbs a ton of water.

Mashed potatoes know no season. You don’t need a special occasion to eat them, just a desire to load dreamy forkfuls of buttery goodness into your mouth. But you can’t achieve peak mash without the right spud — and not all potatoes are created equal when it comes to delivering the best mashed potatoes ever.

Move over russet potatoes

These long, large potatoes with white flesh are usually considered the best for both mashing and frying because they’re starchy (they’re McDonald’s potato of choice). This means they get the right texture when bashed or put through a ricer. However, the Chatelaine Kitchen’s resident mashed potato expert, Carolyn Chua, warns this starchiness has a downside. “They soak up copious amounts of cream and butter and the end result will be only good enough,” she says. Their absorbency can water down flavour, so your decadent side dish will have great texture, but will lack that delicious, earthy potato taste.

I am not kidding, is this okay? Is it too blunt/heavy an object? I'll cry if they throw it away," she tweeted.

Yukon Gold are the best potatoes for mashing

If you’re looking for extra potatoey mashed potatoes turn to this Canadian spud. Yukon Golds, a newish breed dating back to the 1960s, that traces its roots to the University of Guelph in Southwestern Ontario. They’re prized for their yellow flesh and distinct flavour. “Yukon Golds give you a rich, buttery taste that russet doesn’t deliver,” says Chua. Like the russet, Yukon Golds are starchy, but they’re also denser, which means you’ll get a richer mash, plus a beautiful golden hue.

The best way to mash potatoes

Whatever potato you choose, be sure to follow a few simple steps to elevate this easy-to-make dish. Boil your potatoes only until tender (don’t overcook them) and make sure to drain them well so they don’t absorb extra water. To avoid a gluey texture, don’t overwork your potatoes when mixing them with cream, butter, garlic and whatever else you fancy.

Starchy Russets are the most mildly flavored potatoes , but some people prefer more flavorful potatoes . If flavor matters to you just as much as texture, do this instead: Make your mashed potatoes with half Russets and half Yukon Golds for the best of both worlds.
