Directions:
In a steamer set over boiling water, steam the garlic with the potatoes, covered, for 15 minutes or until the potatoes are tender. Remove the steamer from the pan and pour off steaming liquid, reserving it. Force the steamed potatoes and garlic through a ricer or food mill into the pan and stir in the butter and 1/3 to 1/2 cup of the reserved steaming liquid, or enough to achieve the desired consistency. Season with salt and pepper and heat over low heat, stirring, until they are hot. You may also just cook them in water like normal potatoes, drain, add milk and/or sour cream, butter and/or cheddar cheese, and microwaved or baked garlic and mash with an electric beater. Serves 2.
