8(about 2.5 pounds)medium-sized potatoes , like Yukon Gold
3cupschopped savoy cabbage or kale , or a mixture of both
Peel potatoes and cut into quarters (if using organic potatoes, can leave the skins on and just scrub well).
Place potatoes in the bottom of a slow cooker and cover with the chopped cabbage or kale. Add enough water to just cover the vegetables. Cover and cook on low for 7 hours, or until vegetables are tender.
Reduce slow cooker to warm, remove the cooked vegetables and discard the liquid. Put the vegetables back in the slow cooker and lightly mash. Add the half and half and the butter and continue mashing until the mixture is creamy. Add salt and pepper to taste.
