    When we put the potato we add the water too, right?

      of course!!

  2.   Rosary said

    I guess the water goes in the first step, along with the potato ...

  3.   Teresa said

    I was just going to say the same ????

  4.   carmen d said

    You need to say when the water goes in

  5.   Anna Sauleda said

    I also have the doubt of the water, I suppose that it is put together with the potatoes. Thanks

    1.    Mayra Fernandez Joglar said

      Yeah right!! The potatoes, water and salt are put and programmed. But I have already modified the recipe so that everything is clear.

      A greeting!

    For information purposes, the Protected Geographical Indication "Patata de Galicia" or "Pataca de Galicia" establishes that the potato is of the Kennebec variety.

    1.    Mayra Fernandez Joglar said

      Thank you very much Andrés for your qualification. I modify the recipe text to make it clear.

      A greeting!

  7.   Carmen Gomez Perez said

    That I was going to ask the water with the potato, right?

    1.    Mayra Fernandez Joglar said

      yes, of course ... the water and the potatoes are put at the same time 😉

    Could you make the puree without peeling the potatoes? With the idea of ​​not losing all the nutrients that the skin provides.

    1.    Mayra Fernandez Joglar said

      Hi Lucia:

      Power can be done but you will not be left with its white color so particular and appetizing.

      If what you want is an authentic puree and all its properties, I recommend that you peel them a little since vitamin C is found in the skin and in the part that is just below. So if you only remove the skin, the potato will still retain part of this vitamin.

      It is also true that when cooking it, part of the vitamins go into the water, but in this recipe that water is used so that nothing is wasted.

    Instead of water, it can be made with semi-skimmed milk? Would it be good?

    A greeting

    1.    Mayra Fernandez Joglar said

      Yes Ana Belén, you can add milk. This is what is called enriched puree. Soon we will put your recipe so that you have both options.
