Grandmother’s Garlic Mashed Potatoes

Makes 10 to 12 servings

Notes: For a shortcut, buy refrigerated peeled garlic cloves.

 5 pounds russet potatoes
 1 cup peeled garlic cloves
 3/4 cup whipping cream or milk
 3 tablespoons butter or margarine
  Salt and white pepper
Step 1

Peel potatoes and cut into quarters. Place potatoes in a 5- to 6-quart pan and add enough water to cover. Cover pan and bring to a boil over high heat, then simmer until potatoes are tender when pierced, 15 to 20 minutes.

Step 2

Meanwhile, in a 1- to 1 1/2-quart pan over low heat, combine garlic, cream, and butter. Cover and stir occasionally until garlic is tender when pierced, about 10 minutes.

Step 3

In a blender or food processor, purée garlic mixture.

Step 4

Drain potatoes, return to pan, and add garlic purèe. Mash with a potato masher or mixer until smooth. Add salt and pepper to taste.
