I use my peeler and peel a bunch of cloves at once. I always keep a little jar of intact, peeled whole cloves in the fridge.

I turn the garlic clove upside down on my cutting board and smash the bottom with the bottom end of my olive oil bottle. Its the little hard circle at the bottom that adheres the skin to the cloves. Once you break that up, the peel comes off almost by itself.

Sometimes it takes a good couple of whacks...

During the holidays, I DID make some mashed potatoes and put some roasted garlic in them.

Wow!! Talk about poatoes with garlic? That tasted so good! Much better than the instant stuff which is so blasted salty!

Betty Crocker, eat your heart out!!

You got that right. Roasted garlic mashed potatoes is one of my favorites! I sometimes add a little parmesan cheese, too.

That sounds spectacular. How much garlic to potatoes? Have you ever seen a recipe for horseradish mashed potatoes? I had that once in a restaurant in one of the big casinos. It was topped with salmon filet and was outstanding.

Don't know if this has been mentioned in the thread but a recently read tip is to put broken out garlic cloves in a jar and shake well. You certainly can't beat the price.

It's a matter of taste. A head of garlic will do several potatoes. Add the garlic a little at a time and taste.

I just eyeballed it and added two bulbs to about three pounds of mashed potatoes. Like Rachael Ray, I don't measure when I cook. Only when I bake cakes, breads and deserts.

I think I saw Rachael Ray make some horseradish mashed potatoes once on her show.
