I'm looking to make potato gnocchi again but won't have a potato ricer. Is there another way to make the potato flour with it? Will a fine cheese grater work on a baked potato?
You can scoop baked potato flesh out of the skins and press it through a sieve using the back of a spoon. This creates a similar effect to a ricer. The potato flesh needs to be hot/warm to push through the sieve well. You don't need to use too much pressure to get the potato through and be careful doing this as it does put rather a lot of strain on the sieve.
