Should I Salt The Water For Mashed Potatoes?

Potatoes suck in water and salt while cooking. It’s hard to know how salty the end result will be and it’s much easier to add salt than it is to take it away. Add salt while you’re mixing and taste as you go. If you find your potatoes are too salty, adding more liquid, such as milk or buttermilk, or more potatoes can help tone it down.

Leaving it out means you’re starting off with bland potatoes. Follow this tip: Begin the process of seasoning your mashed potatoes by adding salt to the water when cooking the potatoes. You won’t have to add as much salt later and, most importantly, you won’t find yourself with bland potatoes.

If adding 1 cup of kosher salt to your potato water (as in my recipe for Sour Cream and Onion Potato Salad) still seems like a lot, just think about how much of it is going down the pipes when you drain those potatoes. Nearly all of it!
