      Molly drinking shamelessly not smart to put on a video for the world to view. She is very unlikable.

      15:32 As I understand it, stock is made with bones, not roasted meat. Broth is made with meats, weather roasted or not, and stock is made with bones that might have scraps of meat, weather roasted or not.
      Obviously, if you roast the meat and bones you'll get more flavor out of them.

                                    BRAD! Come to Scandinavia! You can get all the 'rotmos' you want! Potato, turnip, carrot, parsnips, maybe rutabaga, it can all make great mash 😘 I prefer your potato/turnip over potato soup any day! 😉

                                                I've never understood how profusely viscous Americans make their mash. If you can't stand a banger up in it then you are doing mash wrong. In my opinion of course. I bet plenty of Brits agree.

                                                  You butter and season a small bit, mash with a masher or ricer, then add the rest of the butter and seasoning to your tastes, gonna make fluffy smooth potatoes not soup or potato chunks
