Potato Ricer

Do you have a potato ricer? My mother had one, and that is the only reason I know about them. It is a very handy item. I mainly use it to prepare potatoes or sweet potatoes to add to baked goods. Here it is sitting in a bowl:

First, I "nuked" a smallish sweet potato:

Broke it into pieces and put it in the ricer:

Then closed the ricer and "riced" the sweet potato:

Here it is all ready:

I like to add white or sweet potatoes to bread and rolls particularly, so this makes it easy and quick and removes any tough bits.

  1. I used to have one but it was donated a couple of years ago. The texture on the potatoes is always so creamy when using a potato ricer.

    Have a blessed week.


  2. I too had a ricer but it was a casuality of the down size. As long as we live in this 5th wheel I have to canstantly refrain from my habit of aquiring things.

  3. Thank you, Mely!

    Debbieo, if I lived in a very small place, I would not have one either... particularly if I did not use it very often!

  4. I have a ricer and have used it to squeeze out excess water from thawed (frozen) spinach. It works well.

  5. Love the new font and blog look.

  6. Thanks!! I keep looking at it trying to decide if I like it or not. :)
