Spring onion mash
Peel 1.5kg floury potatoes and cut into chunks. Boil for 15-20 mins until tender. Drain and mash well or pass through a potato ricer into another pan. Place over a low heat and stir in 200ml double cream, 100ml milk and 100g butter until completely mixed and piping hot. Just before serving, stir through a bunch finely sliced spring onions. Can be made 1 day ahead and reheated with a touch more butter – just add the spring onions at the last moment.
