Mashed Potatoes with Skin are smooth, creamy and buttery, with speckled bites of texture (and let's not forget, added health benefits) thanks to the peel!
Add potatoes to a medium-sized saucepan, fill to cover with water by 2 inches and place over medium-high heat. Allow to come to a boil and reduce to a rapid simmer. Simmer for 20-25 minutes, until the potatoes are fork-tender.
Strain the potatoes well and add them back into the pot along with the butter, cream, salt, pepper, and chives (if using) to the potatoes. You add up to a 1/4 cup more cream for a smoother consistency, if desired.
Mash using a wooden spoon, a whisk or a handheld mixer on low speed until smooth to your liking. Serve and enjoy.
