Makes 3 to 4 cups or 24 to 32 (1-ounce) ice-cube tray servings – Cooker: 4- to 7-quart – Time: 6 minutes at HIGH pressure

  • 2 large or 4 medium russet potatoes (about 1½ pounds total), peeled and cut into 1-inch chunks

  • 2 tablespoons butter, at room temperature
  • pinch white pepper

  11. The potatoes should be soft and tender when pierced with the tip of a knife and hold their shape a bit
  12. Drain in a colander and return to the pot or place in a deep bowl
  13. Use a potato masher, fork, or handheld electric mixer or immersion blender on low speed to mash the potato and butter together until smooth, drizzling in the hot milk as needed
  14. Taste for salt and pepper
  15. Use or let cool completely and store in the refrigerator for 1 to 2 days or the freezer up to 3 months
