Farmers' markets at hospitals are subject to different biorhythms than the usual community market. Our market will be closed on the Friday after Thanksgiving because of the greatly reduced numbers of staff and patients on site that day.
For those cooking a Thanksgiving dinner, this week's mashed potato recipe can help reduce the overall calorie load due to fat. Even though there are only a couple of grams of fat per serving, they are still very tasty.
If, in the past, you wore Birkenstocks and named your child "Redwood Hottub Tuolomne," make this recipe without peeling the potatoes. If you grew up with the BeeGees, go ahead and peel them. Either way, the recipe uses one pot and takes about 20 minutes.
This recipe works well also with Yukon Gold potatoes which have a creamy, buttery texture.
Note: I cut the potatoes in half lengthwise, cut each half lengthwise into thirds then cut crosswise about every inch.
