  1. Peel the potatoes and cut them into ½ inch pieces. Place them and the garlic in a large, heavy pot with salted water to cover. Bring to a boil, reduce the heat, and simmer 8 to 10 minutes, or until the potatoes are soft. Drain in a colander. Return the potatoes to the pan and cook over medium heat for a minute or so, stirring with a wooden spoon, to evaporate any water. At the same time, heat the milk gently until warm. Mash the potatoes with a masher or put them through a food mill. (Do not use a food processor.) Add the oil (if using) and enough milk to make the potatoes fluffy and creamy. Season with salt and pepper. Serve at once.
