    just another question
    was thinking the other day...ouch...somtimes when you want to thicken a sauce up you use flour which is syned and i wondered would it taste ok if you used smash which is free on green(powdered potato)instead or would this taste revolting.would it even work?
    any ideas thouigh on how to thicken sauces would be lovely.
    sorry if this is posted in the wrong place wasnt sure where to put it x

    Yep- use it all the time! Just be careful to add a little at a time and check the consistency- sometimes my hand has slipped and I have ended up with a gloopy mess!

    Yes I use it all the time, but you do have to add it slowly & I tend to add it at the last minute. No reason I just like it that way. :)

    You can use ordinary mashed potato to thicken soups/stews. If I have any left after a meal I freeze it in little pots then just chuck it into the soup/stew still frozen when needed. Better for you than Smash too as it's not processed.
