Servings 6 people
- 4 pounds Gold potatoes peeled & diced

Peel and cut the potatoes into 2-inch cubes
Add the potatoes to a large pot. Add enough water to just cover.
Bring to a boil, then simmer until potatoes are fork tender. Drain the potatoes.
In a small pan, mix together the butter and the buttermilk. Just heat to a bare simmer.
