Wash the potatoes (don't remove the skin), put them in the pot and cover them with water. Let them boil until well cooked (check it with the fork).
When the potatoes are cooked, drain them and mash them with a potato ricer on your board. Don’t worry, the peel will remain in the ricer!
Prepare the Dough
Add flour, some salt and start kneading. Depending on the quality of the potatoes, the quantity of flour needed may slightly vary.
Knead until reaching a smooth and soft dough.
Form the Gnocchi
Divide the dough in smaller parts. Roll each part until you have a long cylinder (like a little snake).Prepare the tray slightly sprinkling it with some semolina.Now form the gnocchi, cutting small pieces from the cylinders.
If you like, roll each gnocco over the fork.Place each formed gnocco onto the tray and cover with a clean cloth.Now you can decide to cook them or to store them.
Boil the gnocchi for about 1 minute in abundant boiling and salted water. As soon as the gnocchi reach the surface, remove them with the sieve/skimmer.Don't cook large quantities together in the same pot. You can divide them in 2 or more groups and cook them separately.Now you can add your favourite condiment and enjoy your homemade gnocchi! 😋
In the fridge: store them covered with a cloth for 2/3 days.
In the freezer: pay attention that there is some space between each gnocco, so that they don't touch each other. Once they're well frozen, you can move them into a freezing bag.
