Tip #1: Under no circumstances should you attempt to mash your potatoes in a food processor. This was a complete and utter disaster. I had to throw away the potatoes as they had become completely unworkable. So mash your potatoes with a potato masher or a good old fork, it’s totally okay if there are some lumps, in fact, it’s probably even better if there is, it means your still far away from over-mashing your potatoes into a sticky mess.
Tip #2: Don’t stress when rolling out your potato ‘rope’. If they rip, they rip, you don’t need it to be one long rope, you’re anyways cutting it.
Tip #3: Constantly rinse off your fork after every 20-30 gnocchi pieces as the sticky residue will cause your gnocchi to not look as pretty.
