What is it? I really need to know as I am moving on campus soon and would like to perfect mine.
Now I normally add a drop of skimmed milk, butter, a healthy dose of pepper and salt, and work away. It can't be too milky or too dry but that perfect degree of consistency that sits comfortably on the tongue but doesn't scrape the palate. The odd time I'd throw in a few onion cuttings for flavour. On special occasions I'd add in scallions for flavour. I'm still finding it very hard to get right though.
What do you consider to be the perfect mash?
