In a large saucepan, bring ¾ inch (2 cm) of lightly salted water to a boil. Meanwhile, peel and cut potatoes into 2 inch (5 cm) pieces. Add potatoes and garlic to boiling water and cover. Return to boil, reduce heat and simmer 15-20 minutes until potatoes can be easily pierced with a fork. Drain and return the potatoes to the pan and heat over low heat for 1-2 minutes, shaking the pan several times. Remove from heat and mash potatoes and garlic until no lumps remain. Add hot milk, butter, salt and pepper to the potatoes and stir with a fork or hand whisk until fluffy.
