Garlic Mashed Potatoes

The third recipe in our series by Chef John Lynch, these potatoes are to die for!

2 pounds of russet potatoes

15 cloves of garlic peeled

5 tablespoons of butter

¾ Cup heavy cream

salt and fresh ground pepper to taste

Peel and cut potatoes into 1 ½ inch pieces. Place in a large pot and fill with cold water, enough to cover the potatoes by 2 inches. Put on medium high heat and bring to boil. Turn down to a rapid simmer and cook until potatoes are soft to the tip of a knife, about 20 minutes.

While the potatoes are cooking place the butter, cream and garlic into a sauce pan and put over medium low heat, to melt the butter and infuse the garlic flavor into the cream. When potatoes are ready, strain cream through a strainer and force the garlic through the strainer.

Drain and mash the potatoes while pouring the garlic cream mixture. Stir in the salt and pepper, and serve immediately.
