Shell them and drop them into a saucepan of boiling water, into which you have put a teaspoonful of salt and one of sugar. 

Boil them till they are tender, from fifteen minutes, if they are fresh from the garden, to half an hour or more, if they have stood in the grocer's for a day or two.

When they are done they will have little dents in their sides, and you can easily mash two or three with a fork on a plate.

Then drain off the water, put in three shakes of pepper, more salt if they do not taste just right, and a piece of butter the size of a hickory-nut, and shake them till the butter melts; serve in a hot covered dish.
