Apple Mash

Are you looking for a simple, yet tasty side dish that you can add to your next dinner? If so, then try this long time favorite that originated in Ireland. A surprisingly tasty mixture of apples, mashed potatoes, and butter, apple mash is extremely easy to make. In fact, if you know the basics of making mashed potatoes, then you know enough to make apple mash. This wonderful treat can literally be used as a side dish for breakfast, lunch or dinner. All it really takes is a little imagination, and a desire for great tasting food. Here's how you make this tasty treat.

Ingredients:

  • 2 pounds of cooking apples
  • 4 pounds of potatoes
  • 2 tablespoons of sugar
  • 4 ounces of butter

Recipe:

  1. Prepare the potatoes. Begin making your apple mash by preparing the potatoes. This means that you need to clean, peel, and cut up the potatoes. Keep in mind that the smaller you cut your potatoes, the quicker they will cook. On average a good size to cut your potatoes would be roughly 1/2 inch cubes.
  2. Boil the potatoes. Place the potatoes into a large pot and cover them with water. Add some salt to the water, and then bring everything to a boil. Allow your potatoes to cook while you work on the rest of the meal.
  3. Prepare the apples. While your potatoes are cooking, prepare the apples for cooking. This means that you need to peel, core, and slice the apples. Keep in mind that, just like with the potatoes, the apples will cook quicker.
  4. Cook the apples. Place the sliced and cored apples into a pot along with 2 tablespoons of water, and the sugar. Cook the apples over medium to medium-high heat until they have become soft.
  5. Mix in the ingredients. Once your potatoes and apples are finished, begin mixing everything together. Mix the apples, butter and potatoes together the same way that you would make any other kind of mashed potatoes. When everything has been mixed together to your satisfaction, you are ready to serve.

Serve this dish as you normally would mashed potatoes, meaning as a side dish. However, this dish isn't just a side dish, it can be a wonderful after dinner treat all by itself. Some of the other dishes that apple mash can partner with quite well are things like Irish stew, alongside some bacon in the morning, or some fried herring if you are in the mood for some sea food. This recipe will serve four people, so feel free to adjust it as needed to meet your needs.
