Smash as PDYA shortcut?
    #3008208 - 08/16/04 07:11 AM (12 years, 3 months ago)

the powdered potato stuff in my local supermarket, like Smash for example, says it has 'preservative' in it.

can someone recommend a dried out potato to use as a shortcut to boiling spuds for half an hour?

It might still work, I have used potato flakes with preservatives (Na2S2O5) with good results. The amounts I use are 2 g potato flakes, 1 g glucose, ~0.1-0.2 g dried yeast and 2 g agar per 100 ml water.

I've used smash as well as numerous other brands of instant mash with good results on many occasions Shirl.

I'm using Whitworths brand from Quicksave at the moment which contains
emulsifiers, acidity regulators, preservatives, antioxidants and citric acid.. works great!

The additives are in such minute quantities it doesn't make a difference.
