  • 1 kg Faroe Islands potatoes, peeled and cut into chunks
  • 4 tablespoons butter
  • 1/2 cup milk
  • Salt, to taste
  • Freshly ground black pepper, to taste
  • Chopped chives or parsley for garnish (optional)


Rinse the potatoes under cold water to remove any dirt or debris.

Place the potato chunks in a large pot and cover them with cold water. Add a pinch of salt to the water.

Bring the water to a boil over medium-high heat. Reduce the heat to medium-low and let the potatoes simmer for about 15-20 minutes or until they are fork-tender.

Once the potatoes are cooked, drain them well and return them to the pot.

Add the butter to the pot and mash the potatoes using a potato masher until they reach your desired consistency. You can leave them slightly chunky or mash them until they are smooth.

Gradually add the milk to the mashed potatoes, stirring continuously, until the potatoes are creamy and smooth. You may need more or less milk depending on the desired consistency.

Season the mashed potatoes with salt and freshly ground black pepper to taste. Adjust the seasoning as needed.

Transfer the mashed potatoes to a serving dish and garnish with chopped chives or parsley, if desired.

Serve hot as a delicious side dish alongside your favorite Faroese main course.
