Cooking: 15 minutes
Total: 30 minutes

  1. On a cutting board, peel the potatoes. Place the potatoes in a large bowl of cold water after peeling to prevent discoloration. Dice the potatoes into 1-inch cubes.

  2. Add the potatoes to a large pot of cold water, along with the salt. Bring to a soft boil over high heat, then reduce the heat to low and simmer for about 12 minutes, until the potatoes are fork-tender.

  3. Drain the potatoes in a colander, then return to the pot. Increase the heat to medium-high, then stir the potatoes around for 2 to 3 minutes to evaporate any excess moisture.

  4. Transfer the potatoes to a large bowl and mash with a potato masher, potato ricer, or by pushing through a fine mesh sieve with a spatula.

  5. Add the melted butter and stir to incorporate, then season with salt to taste.

  6. In a small saucepan, combine the heavy cream, rosemary, and garlic. Bring to a simmer over low heat, then let simmer for a few minutes. Remove the pot from the heat and strain through a fine-mesh sieve.

  7. Gradually add the cream mixture to the potatoes, a little at a time, stirring until fully incorporated.

  8. Top with a pat of butter, freshly ground black pepper, and a sprinkle with chives, or gravy. Serve, and enjoy!
