Make a good homemade mash:

  • Peel large, firm apples, cut them into pieces and cook them in cold salted water until they crumble a bit. Drain and mash them in a vegetable mill (especially not in a blender, which would give the mash an elastic and sticky texture).
  • Heat the mash over low heat, add butter (75 g for 750 g of flesh), mix with a wooden spatula and relax with a little milk (or cream, meat juice, etc.) in order to obtain the desired consistency.
  • Garnish with salt, pepper, garlic, grated nutmeg or others as desired.

Based on this recipe, leftover mash can be accommodated differently by varying a few ingredients: ham,
parsley, emmental, mimolette, onion, garlic, leftover meat or fish ...
