 --------  ------------  --------------------------------
    8      large         potatoes
    8                    garlic cloves
      3/4  teaspoon      salt
                         milk -- optional
      1/8  teaspoon      freshly ground pepper
 Peel potatoes and cut into large chunks. Place in cold water until cooking
 time. To cook, place potatoes and garlic in a 4-quart pot and barely cover
 with water (the tips of several potatoes will not be covered). Add 1/2
 teaspoon salt and bring to boil over high heat. Boil, uncovered, over
 medium-high heat until tender, 20 to 30 minutes. Potato is cooked when
 point of a knife goes in and out without potato clinging to it.
 Puree potatoes using potato masher, food mill or similar device. Do not use
 food processor which will cause potatoes to become pasty. Moisten puree
 with some of the cooking liquid until desired consistency is reached. If
 more liquid is necessary, use milk. Season with remaining salt and pepper.
