Nana's House Before They Arrive From Hither and Yon

By

The photo above was taken at my house awhile ago.  In just a few short hours my family will begin to gather from hither and yon for Thanksgiving dinner.

I wanted to take this opportunity to share one more recipe before the holiday.  There will be 14 of us celebrating the big day.   Here's a different twist for potatoes for a special meal.


Carolina Low Country Potatoes

  • 9 - 10 medium - large Irish/Russet potatoes
  • 1 medium to large Yam
  • Milk (enough to mash all potatoes)
  • Sour Cream (about 1/2 pint for this amount of potatoes)
  • Grated Cheddar Cheese (about 1 cup for this amount of potatoes)
  • Chopped Green Onions
  • Caraway Seeds (probably about 1 tsp, or so)
  • Fennel Seeds (probably about 1 tsp, or so)
  • Dash of Cinnamon (optional)

Directions:

Boil all potatoes to desired tenderness for proper mashing.  Add enough milk (or chicken broth if preferred) to mash.  Stir in sour cream, Grated Cheese, Chopped Green Onions, Caraway Seeds, Fennel Seeds, Cinnamon.

Serve Hot

[note from Myrl:  This recipe is something I adapted from other Carolina Low Country recipes.  I am one of those cooks, who doesn't own a set of measuring spoons.  The recipe is forgiving, and very adaptable.  I've added diced red and green peppers, sliced olives and other ingredients at times.

Hi Myrl,

Yes, that table does look stunning and thank you for yet another wonderful recipe. Like yourself, I don't have any measuring spoons either so I tend to add a tsp "or so" of this and a tsp "or so" of that too.  LOL.  Always seems to work though!

Hope you had a wonderful Thanksgiving.

Hi Myrl, Oops It looks like I missed another one. And I really do try. Wonderful photo. Now, I know those chairs and even the dining room looks familiar. I must have read this  and just not commented.
