Am making some for lunch and wondering how long the rest would last in the fridge. One day? Two days? Three? I kow that I can freeze it, just wondering about the fridge

Ummm, a couple of days? I'd probably use it up in soup if it was still hanging round after that.

If you put milk or butter in it, a day or two I'd say. Probably a day or so longer without.

If you add boiled milk to it it last a bit longer, like 2-3 days.

Why don't you just freeze it?

I do ths all the time and split it into portons before I freeze so I can take out quick mash for the kids tea etc.

I heat it thoroughly in the microwave, stir, put back in, stir, put back in and then stir some butter in when very hot just before serving. Lovely.

freeze it or about 3 days it lasts for.

if you do freeze it, add a little milk to it before microwaving, otherwise it'll dry out a little, then add more butter grin
