Potatoes Creamed in a Double Boiler
|Onion||2 Tablespoon, grated|
|Ground pepper||To Taste|
|Ground nutmeg||1⁄8 Teaspoon|
|Heavy cream||1 Cup (16 tbs)|
Soak the potatoes in a bowl of cold water for 30 minutes.
Drain and dry between paper towels.
Place the potatoes and the remaining ingredients except paprika into the top of a double boiler.
Cook covered over boiling water for about 45 minutes or until the potatoes are tender and the sauce thick.
Check the boiling water; it may have to be replenished.
Check for moisture.
Potatoes absorb liquids differently and it may be necessary to add a little more cream or hot water, 2 tablespoons at a time, to get the desired consistency.
Sprinkle with paprika before serving.
