Mashed Potatoes

Wash thoroughly (no need to peel) and cut into roughly 1½ cm cubes:

About 700 grams potatoes

Place in a deep, heavy pot, and almost cover completely with water. A few little bits sticking out from the top of the water is not a problem.  


1 t salt

Cover and boil until soft. Test by sticking a fork into one of the bigger pieces. It should go in easily.

Remove from heat and drain the water by holding the lid of the pan slightly askew and allowing the water to pour out (but not the potatoes).


1½-2 T butter
2-3 T milk (Add it little by little until you get the thickness you want.)
¼-½ t pepper
(1 t finely minced garlic)
(a little more salt, if you think they need it)

Mash until desired consistency. Serve.
