Most of us consider mayo and mustard as staple ingredients in potato salad recipes. However, can you imagine making potato salad without your favorite go-to condiments? Can you imagine making a mashed potato dish without the help of milk or cream? Yet, that’s exactly what you’ll do if you follow this recipe from the early 20th century.
This traditional mashed potato recipe comes from the California branch of the National Federation of Afro-American Women. The recipes were compiled by their members, and this one came from Mrs. Atchison of Los Angeles. The recipe calls for “a little butter,”—but if you’re anything like me, you may want to double it.
