The potatoes are not peeled in this version of the old classic. The skins give
an attractive color and flavor to the dish, but feel free to peel them if you wish.
3/4 cup water
4 pounds red potatoes, quartered
1/2 to 3/4 cup milk, warmed
2 cloves garlic, peeled and crushed
1/4 cup butter, melted
Salt and freshly ground pepper to taste
Place trivet in bottom of a 4-quart or larger Duromatic pressure cooker. Add
water, garlic and potatoes. Close lid and bring pressure to second red ring over
high heat. Adjust heat to stabilize at the second red ring. Cook for 6 to 10 minutes,
depending on the size and age of the potatoes.
Remove from heat and use Natural
Release Method (remove from heat and allow pressure to subside naturally).
Drain potatoes and garlic and let stand a minute to drain excess moisture. Put
potatoes and garlic through a potato ricer or mash with a potato masher and transfer
to a warmed serving dish.
Add milk, 1/4 cup at a time while beating, until the potatoes
are creamy. Beat until blended.
Season with salt and pepper to taste.
Serves 6 to 8.
