3 pounds Yukon Gold potatoes
cup buttermilk
medium sized head of cabbage
4 tablespoons butter, room temperature
1 tablespoon sugar
kosher salt
freshly ground white pepper

Chop the potatoes into small equal sized pieces. Peel (if you don't have a food mill).
Put in a pot and add enough water to cover. Bring to a boil, then simmer until soft.
Process the potatoes through a food mill-- or mash them with a potato masher.
Add about cup of buttermilk and 4 tablespoons of butter. Mix to combine.
Season with kosher salt and white pepper to taste.

---Shred the cabbage. Then wash and drain it in the sink.
Bring a large pot to a boil with 1 tablespoon salt and 1 tablespoon sugar.
Add the cabbage.
Boil for 2-3 mintues until the cabbage has soften but is not mushy.
Drain the cabbage and then mix into the prepared potatoes.

Notes--I call for white pepper in this recipe for 2 reasons: 1) white pepper won't stand out in appearance like black pepper 2) The milder flavor of white pepper doesn't overwhelm the rest of the dish
