Hahahaha! My mashed white potatoes tend to come out pasty! I think part of the issue is that I tend to boil them to DEATH (I'm easily sidetracked!), so I probably drain off a lot of the excess starch from the Golds, whereas it likely just disintegrates the whites & makes them almost rice-y.

Also I think mashing/whipping is a fine line between "just right" and "overworked". If they're pasty, they're overworked, no matter what kind they are; some just require less than others. I'm famous (infamous?) for doing this with dough, and it creates a lovely substance akin to bricks.

But again, there is no potato I dislike, so if they come out gluey or lumpy or creamy or flaky... I love 'em all!

If I can't be a good example, I'll just have to be a horrible warning.

THAT we agree on!

Now, I tend to be from the skins-on, leave 'em lumpy camp... (as long as I didn't boil them into oblivion)... y'all?

I like lumpy sometimes and really smooth & creamy whipped sometimes...
sometimes with skins on, sometimes peeled...
Depends on what I'm serving & my mood...

That sounds good, I just found this one and I'm going to give it a try:


Ingredients

4 large naval oranges, peeled and cut into chunks
4 large apples, cored and cut into chunks
1 (12 ounce) package frozen cranberries
1 (3 ounce) package strawberry flavored gelatin mix
1 cup white sugar
1 cup chopped pecans

Directions

Place the oranges in the bowl of a food processor, and pulse until chopped, 2 or 3 pulses. Remove and place the chopped oranges into a large bowl. Chop the apples in the food processor for 2 or 3 pulses, and place in the bowl. Chop the cranberries in the food processor for 2 or 3 pulses, and place in the bowl with the oranges and apples.

Stir the gelatin mix, sugar, and chopped pecans into the chopped fruit, and mix well. Cover and refrigerate until set, at least 2 hours.

Cook rice as directed on package.Plump the raisins in warm water and drain.Finely chop all the vegetables and combine with rice in large bowl. Whisk the oil and vinegar with some chopped green onions and pour over rice and vegetables. Chill or serve at room temp.

Tucker...
YES!!!I have made that one (or at least one very similar) in the past! It's very good!
I think the only change I made was to substitute either dried Cranberries or Black Currants for the raisnis...
I always prefer currants to raisins...
