Potatoes Gnocchi (Nonna's recipe!)


Potato Gnocchi


This recipe is my grandma recipe. We used to make gnocchi on sundays and the kids would always help to cut while the nonna will be making the sauce. 


Ingredients


  • Yellow Potatoes 2 pounds (900g)
  • Flour 1 cup (you might need more)
  • Butter 1 Tbsp  
  • Salt 1 Tbsp 
  • Nutmeg (optional)
  1. Put potatoes with the skin in a pot with cold salty water
  2. Bring to boil and cooked until soft
  3. Peel the potatoes
  4. Mash the potatoes with a good potato masher
  5. Add the butter, flour and the salt , do not overwork...
  6. Cut the dough in 3 pieces, roll each in order to form a string 1.5 cm thick
  7. Cut the strings with a sharp knife to form dowels; you can choose the dimension of your gnocchi.
  8. Boil until floats.

Tips:
-After cook the potatoes, let the potatoes to
cool down without add any water on top!
-Work with the potatoes while the potatoes are still warm.
-After you cut the gnocchi DO NOT pile up or they will stick together!
-Use the best potatoes you can find. (In Italy, use patate gialle, in USA Yukan Gold Potatoes)
