Big winner in our house now winter is here it’s cooking away .. can’t wait for dinner we love a crusty loaf with loads of butter on it with it yummy

So cook for the 6hrs until tender, then add cream, then blend and serve 🙂

Should the cream be added when the potatoes are soft and leave it to continue to cook or should cream be added at the end before cooking is finished?
