Ingredients
  • 2 pounds medium red-skinned potatoes, scrubbed

  • 1/2 cup milk
  • 3 tablespoons unsalted butter
  • Freshly ground black pepper

Put the potatoes in a medium saucepan, cover with cold water, and season with salt. Bring to a simmer over medium heat and cook until potatoes are very tender, about 20 minutes.
