How to make roses from potatoes.
Peel the potatoes. Boil in water with the addition of a spoonful of salt. Let them cool down but do not let them get cold because it is easier to press them when they are warm.
Squeeze the potatoes through a press. Do not use a potato masher because mashed potatoes will have a rubbery consistency.
Add the wasabi and double cream to the potato mass. Mix thoroughly with a fork.
Put the potato mass into a confectionery bag or a plastic bag. If you use the latter, cut off a corner. The size and shape of the roses will depend on the size and shape of the tip you put on the plastic bag. If you want them to be small and thin, use a tip with a small hole. If you want to get the opposite effect, use one with a big hole.
Start squeezing the potatoes from the center towards the outside, giving them a round shape at the same time.
It is best to squeeze these potato roses directly on the baking tray previously lined with baking paper.
Bake for 30 minutes on 180 degrees Celsius.
Serve as an addition to meat dishes.
Good to know when making potato roses.
The wasabi can be replaced with plain horseradish. The taste will be a little different but the dish will still be delicious.
