The Secret Ingredients To FLUFFY Mashed Potatoes

Who doesn’t enjoy clouds of creamy mashed potatoes – the perfect condiment to a Thanksgiving meal. Or even enjoyed all year round with just about any meal.

So how does one get that perfect, creamy texture?
The secret ingredient is Baking Soda or Baking Powder!

What’s the science behind that?
According to Woman’s World, “When you add Baking Soda, it reacts with the heat of the dish and the acid in the milk or cream to create small air pockets throughout the mash. These air bubbles translate to light and airy bites.”

Important Tip…
?If you only have BAKING SODA at home, please remember to add an acidic ingredient like buttermilk, yogurt, etc to create carbon dioxide because the gas emits small bubbles giving that airy result, thereby making the texture of mashed potatoes fluffy.
?On the other hand, BAKING POWDER, which is essentially composed of baking soda and dry acids already contains that acidic ingredient, which is why it’s better to use when looking to increase fluffiness in your mashed potatoes.

Traditional Mashed Potato Recipe:
?Boil Potatoes until soft (choose higher starch potatoes like Russets).
?Drain and mash (don’t stir) them using a fork
?Add butter, warm milk or heavy cream (optional)
?Add a pinch of BAKING SODA/POWDER and mix
?Season with salt and pepper 

Always remember to keep tasting and trying as an excess of baking soda can make your mashed potatoes taste salty and a bit bitter.

We hope this little trick can ‘fluff’ up your Thanksgiving meal!
