Chef's notes

You can use the potato water for stock or for bread making.

Timings will vary according to quantity and type of potato used. I would personally recommend King Edward. The mashed potato illustrated was mixed for 10 seconds and looks very gluey, so if you want something rather less puréed I should start with 4 seconds and keep checking until it has achieved your preferred consistency.
