Make your own gnocchi from scratch
Ingredients
  • 360g of floury potato (I used desiree)
  • About 70-90g of flour
  • Salt and pepper to season
Instructions
  1. Pop the potatoes (with their skin on) in a pot of water and bring to the boil.
  2. Boil for 20-25 minutes. You want them to be just cooked. I used a skewer to check they were cooked but you don't want to check them too much as you don't want to get water in to the potato. Other recipes recommend baking the potatoes to keep the potatoes dry. if you do this you could probably peel them first.
  3. Take the potatoes out of the boiling water and dry them off.
  4. While still hot, peel the potatoes.
  5. Let the potatoes cool slightly but not too much.
  6. Once slightly cooled, dust the bench with some flour and start kneading flour into the potato.
  7. Knead until the potato dough is ligthly sticky.
  8. Roll the potato into 1 inch wide log.
  9. Cut the log into pieces of about 1 and a 1/2 inches long.
  10. Using your fork with the tines (prongs) facing down, press the tines (prongs) into the gnocchi.
  11. When you are ready to use the gnocchi, put them in a pot of boiling water and when they float to the top they are cooked. Drain and add your sauce.
