Great side dish for Thanksgiving dinner!

  • 2 lbs. potatoes, white or gold, organic
  • 1/4 c. water, purified
  • 1/4 c. butter, unsalted, organic, raw or unpasteurized, grass-fed/pastured
  • 1/2 c. milk, full-fat, raw, grass-fed or pastured cows, organic
  • sea salt, unrefined, & fresh ground pepper, organic to taste

Peel and dice potatoes. Put potatoes, water and butter into the crock pot. Season with salt and pepper. Cook on low for 7 hours or on high for up to 4 hours (start checking on it after about 2 hours). When the potatoes are done cooking, mash them and add milk until they're as creamy as you like. Keep potatoes warm on low until serving.

If you make these ahead of time, I would suggest adding some milk when you reheat them to get them back to the creamy consistency.
